I grew up all around the Southeast as a “red-headed preacher’s kid” so it’s hard to hurt my feelings! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from The Medical University of South Carolina in the beautiful city of Charleston. I worked as a neonatal and pediatric ICU nurse in Charleston and Atlanta before taking some time off to be a full time mom. While living in Germany, I earned my Masters Degree in Education and taught school for 5 years, both in Germany and back in Georgia.

Currently, I am following my life long dream of writing. I’m a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and serve as co-assistant regional advisor, as well as local liaison for the Savannah area. I hope to have many more novels on the way, including some for young readers. I live in Georgia with my husband of 31 years and am the proud mom of two wonderful young adults.
