About Me

I may not have realized I was a writer at the time, but my earliest childhood memories were spent creating fairy-tale stories of the father I never knew. That desire to connect with the mysterious man in a treasured photograph gave me a deep love for the endless possibilities of a healing and everlasting story. 

My debut novel, Solomon’s Porch, is scheduled for release in July of 2021.

I am also a writer/music reviewer for Nashville Arts & Entertainment and Crossroad Magazines, a devotional contributor to Christian Woman, Power for Today, Inspire a Fire, and The Christian Pulse.

A wife of one, mother of three, and Tootsie to four, I currently write from my quiet two-acre corner of the world near Elizabethtown, KY. I have spent the last few years preparing to introduce my novels and children’s stories to the world.

Solomon's Porch

Time.

Solomon is running out of it, and he never makes wise choices when pressed for time.

A broken and forgotten man fighting the demons of dementia, he longs for the past when both he and his beloved town of Ginger Ridge once thrived together.

When his stooped body collides with the hardened realities of the present, Solomon lies in a coma as an unidentified victim in a faraway city, and has no idea what a difference he will make on the future . . .
