Welcome! This is my writing website with information about my published books, essays, articles and, of course, works in progress.
So many people, books, articles, websites, and blogs have been helpful to me in this journey that I've created a reading list to capture inspiration from noted authors and two blogs--one to document the many facets of writing and publishing that a self-taught writer had to digest and the other to record my musings on other women of the arts, word art or otherwise. I hope you will find something useful to you here and, of course, that you'll be tempted to order one of my novels to enjoy at your leisure.

The Quiet Room
My latest novel will be released in December 2013. See the "books" tab for pre-release information and stay tuned for information on ordering a copy or attending signings.
Winner of the Atlanta Writer's Club Spring 2013 Writing Competition ... my short story "Shamrocks, Nudes, and Nightingales" won first place for the "wild card" themed short story competition. Look for a full fledged book based on the story in late 2013.
Released in 2013 ... Into the Light of Day" a collection of ten short stories "torn from the pages of real lives". In the summer and fall of 2012, I interviewed several individuals, some life-long friends, some distant relatives, and some complete strangers all of whom were gracious enough to contribute their memories and moments.
Released in 2011 ... MERYL'S COMMITMENT, my experiment in romance novels in the style of Harlequin Romances but with a dose of southern flavor. A predictable happy ending, of course (that's what romances are all about) and a quick read to boot for escaping the everyday when you need a break.
