hen I was a teen, I had a yellow, spiral notebook. On the

                 cover in black marker I wrote: Words of Wisdom by Buffy 

                 Andrews.  With all of the wisdom of a 13-year-old, I penned

                my thoughts about topics such as pursuing your dreams.

              Torn and tattered, I still have that notebook — and I still

      have my dreams.

​A journalist by day and an author by night, I love telling stories. I write middle grade, young adult, contemporary romance and women's fiction. I've even written a picture book, One Frog. Two Frogs. Three Frogs. Four. 


Some of my fiction ideas pop into my head at the most inopportune times, such as during a sermon or in the shower or when I’m supposed to be listening in a meeting. I’ve written all over church bulletins, jumped out of the shower more than once to write down an idea and turned meeting handouts into story boards.

​I’ve fallen in love with every single character I’ve written about, from Freaky Frank who makes me laugh out loud to Sarah Elizabeth in The Moment Keeper, whose journey always leaves me with tear-stained cheeks.

​​I'm blessed with a wonderful husband and two sons who have taught me some of the most important lessons in life. I am grateful for their love and support and for reminding me that dreams can come true.

I hope you check out my author page on Amazon and if you love literary gifts as much as I do, visit me here or at Author And Friends on Cafepress, Etsy and Facebook.

I'd love to hear from you!
