About Me

Welcome to my writing office.

I am an editor and award-winning author of sweet contemporary and inspirational romance. I am also a wife, mother, grandmother, non-Hodgkin Lymphoma survivor, musician, and speaker.

I began to pursue a career in writing and editing in 2004. My first inspirational romance published in 2008. I continue to be a student of the craft, and have gained experience through my years of publishing with Pelican Book Group and my independent projects. I am a member of The Christian Pen, Realm Makers, and other writing organizations.

If you are interested in my YA Supernatural/Fantasy series, please visit me and the Warrior Saints at my other pen name, Carla Thorne.

In 2014, I expanded my writing career to include editing services. After mentoring new writers and organizing several critique groups, I realized how much I enjoy encouraging and assisting writers on their journey to publication. Details of my editing, mentoring, and critique services found here.

Always free! Download a copy of one of my first and favorite inspirational romances, Under the 5th Street Bridge.

I currently live near Houston with my husband. We have three children, two grandchildren, and two extremely helpful Maine Coon Muse Cats.
