About Me

IMG_1624 IMG_1069 snow

Oh man, have I told you yet how glad I am that you’re here?
Let me tell you a little bit about me.

I am a wife to a talented husband in the professional theater industry, a mom to a crazy cool daughter. We currently live in Texas where I work full-time as the Director of Communications for a large church. We moved here from our home in North Carolina a few years ago, which inspired my love of the Blue Ridge Mountains (it’s the setting of much of my fiction). Scroll down to learn more.

I am also an author of Contemporary Romance novels and other feel-good stories rooted in my Christian faith.

Want to get in touch? Feel free to email me!
I also would love to connect and become friends.

Southern romance inspired by grace.

They say “write what you know.” I’m fortunate to know grace and love pretty well – the grace of a heavenly Father who forgives me without my deserving it, and a love deeper and wider than my vast imagination can comprehend. I’m also lucky to have been wooed by a man who loved me actively and wholeheartedly, the kind of love that strives to be unconditional. Oh, if my writing can speak of these sorts of grace and love to others – maybe even you – then what a gift it is, indeed.

The Juicy Stuff…Let’s Connect!

Now that we have the formalities out of the way, let me say that I yearn to really connect with each and every one of you. And, I feel we can’t do that without sharing the juicy stuff of life. The what-makes-you-you stuff. Here’s me, in all my glory…

Lightening mesmerizes me.
My dreams are vivid to the point of exhaustion.
I still sing lullabies to my seven year old daughter.
I bite my nails.
I love the show Naked and Afraid on NatGeo.
I worry what people think of me.
On stressful days, I drown my thoughts with super loud music in the car.
I battle overeating.
I have to color my premature graying hair twice a month.
I won’t eat food that has even touched an olive.
Sometimes on my lunch break, I simply park under a shade tree and rest.
I forget my friends’ kids’ birthdays.
I identify as a 4 on the Enneagram (check out what that is here).
I am starting to have a hard time falling asleep at night (hello, almost middle age!)
I want another baby, but feel like the window is closing.
My husband and I met on the internet by “accident” back in 1998.
I am not a good housekeeper.
I am a great home cook.
I was born in Hawaii as a Navy brat, but left at 11 months old and haven’t been back.
The ending of Footloose makes me cry every time.
I’ve hugged Sting.
I was part of the pilot episode of a Nickelodeon kids talk show that never aired.
Loose teeth gross me out and I won’t help my daughter pull hers.

What about you?
