Welcome!

I've been a writer since the second grade when I wrote my first story about a hound dog named Blue. Over the years, I've written short stories, plays, novels, screenplays, articles and more. In addition to my passion for writing romantic comedies, I'm a dog lover extraordinaire and have fun providing pet tarot readings for humane society and animal rescue fundraisers.

My personal goal in life is to become the person my dog, Pawlette, thinks I am! My professional goal is to write entertaining stories that bring pleasure to those who read them.

Please feel free to contact me, say hello, and share your thoughts and ideas. I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you for your interest and I hope you enjoy the books.
