I've been writing and creating stories for as long as I can remember.  Even as a child, words were my favorite playmates and my first love.  This relationship led me to a 27 (so far) year career as a high school English, Creative Writing, and Speech/Debate teacher, and my students became my muses.  In the past two years, I have rededicated myself to writing as a craft and a career, and have decided to follow my lifelong dream of being a professional novelist.

I live in Wesley Chapel, Florida with my beloved husband, a daughter who is the sunshine of my existence, and a very ancient and talkative cat.
