Welcome to my writing office.


Sweet romance from a witty transplanted

Texan who’s a mountain girl at heart.

Writing funny stories with a bit of snark, celebrating
life & family, always looking for a good brownie.

I am an editor and award-winning author of sweet contemporary romance and inspirational romance. I am also a writing teacher/coach, non-Hodgkin Lymphoma survivor, musician, and speaker.

I began to pursue a career in writing and editing in 2004. My first inspirational romance was published in 2008. I continue to be a student of the craft, and have gained experience through my years of publishing with a small press and my independent projects. I am a member of several writing organizations.

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.

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

Always free!
