About me

As an author, editor, workshop leader, and mentor, my passion is to encourage other writers, helping them sharpen their skills and polish their prose. I also love writing devotions and helping others see God's Word as relevant and practical for everyday life.

I have written material for ladies’ groups, marriage retreats, skits, websites, brochures, numerous anthologies, and various online venues. 

My first book, Murder of a Manuscript, gives basic writing and editing tips to help keep your book out of the editorial graveyard. It is available on Amazon.

The Gift (part of the Christmases Past anthology) is my first fiction piece to be published. It deals with a young couple's journey of loss and healing and is available on Amazon for only ninety-nine cents.

My newest book, Praying for the Prodigal, released March 2015 and is available on Amazon. This book is filled with encouragement, practical advice, and hope for those waiting for a prodigal to return. It was a finalist in the 2015 USA Best Book Awards.

Currently, I am:
  • Staff writer and Associate Editor for Christian Devotions Ministries (We are always looking for new devotional writers for both the adult and children's site.)
  • Associate Editor for Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas 
  • Associate Acquisitions Editor for Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas (LPC has several active imprints, ranging from romance to speculative fiction and Christian living nonfiction.)
  • Freelance writer, editor, and mentor (If you need help getting your manuscript ready to submit to an agent or publisher, I would love to work with you.)
  • Wife, mother, grandmother of five adorable little girls, Hallmark movie junkie, and lover of dark chocolate
