For over nine years I taught second grade before pursuing a career in writing. I live with my husband and our two sons in a 1920 Craftsman-style house, where in the walls we found old shoes (for luck, we’re told), driftwood, and parts of shipping crates from the nearby beach.

Some of my essays, short stories, and poems have appeared in The Litchfield Literary Review, The Family Digest, The Front Porch syndicate, the Birmingham Arts Journal, the Liguorian, True Romance,Storiesfor Children, and several anthologies such as Letters to My Mother (Adams Media) and Haunted Encounters (Atriad Press). My first novel was Lost And Found Love, published in 2003 by Koenisha Publications.
