HeaderAll good stories start somewhere and mine began with a shy, imaginative child who loved to draw. This was my sole purpose in life, telling stories with pictures. Then I learned how to write and a world of possibilities opened up to me: the stories I imagined I could now express in words. I penned my first full-length story when I was fifteen and have continued writing since then – first in journals, followed by short stories and finally in book form, publishing my first novel, After The Call, in 2006. It was a non-fiction account of my journey towards destiny; and while I enjoyed writing it, my preferred genre has become women’s fiction/romance. My subsequent books, Stepmother’s Anonymous and Speak Tenderly To Her, speak to the topic of forgiveness, while The Book of Joy focus on the wonders of love, and Stay With Me focuses on mental illness and stigmas. I also write Biblical fiction. I still draw, but as of lately focus all my free time on writing. I can’t tell you how my story will end, but as an adamant believer in happy endings, I will say the destination is going to be worth the journey.
