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.
