Read Sample

I began writing at the age of 12. Growing up outside of New York City, I attended many Broadway plays and musicals that served to stimulate my imagination. While attaining my Journalism degree at Marshall University I received numerous writing awards. After graduation, I maintained my desire to write by editing and writing for corporate bulletins, preschool/elementary school newsletters and the local newspaper. As a stay at home mom, I am able to devote my mornings to writing, something that is now coming to fruition. My children’s books, THE VILLA DOG, (an Epic Award nominee and a Main Line Magazine staff pick),THE OLD FORTRESS DOG, and THE KONA DOG (all 3rd grade book club reads) have been embraced by children, parents, and the educational community. My first novel, FLIGHT OF LITTLE DOVE, a Historical/Romance set on America’s frontier in the 1870s, received five (5) star reviews and is a book club selection for various independent bookstores. Recently, my second historical romance with characters from FLIGHT spinning their own brave and ambitious story, SISTERS INN, is being received with high acclaim. SAFE ENCOUNTER is my recently released novella.
