About Me

I’m just me: wife, Mom, Mimi, nurse, and writer. My first book, “The Giggle Box”, was published by the now-closed Peak City Publishing in Apex, NC. Inspired by my own family, it is a story about the healing power of laughter and the value of friendship, mixed with a healthy dose of whimsy! My second book, “The Town of Alpaca”, has now been published and is chock full of healthy values and social graces. I strayed a bit from my usual genre with my next one. It is called “The Prettiest House on the Block: A Revealing Story of Domestic Partner Abuse”, by Blue Heron Book Works in Allentown, Pa., and it is a powerful memoir for a survivor of domestic violence.

Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. is my birthplace but Bethlehem, Pa. is my home town. We moved to NC in 1990 and have lived in Durham, Rocky Mount, Cary, and now Wake Forest. I love God and my family; everything else is secondary. Writing, however, stays close behind the first two! Gardening holds a place in my heart, also. I have been married to my husband since 1974. We have four children and five grandchildren, to date, who are all lights in my life.
