Writing full-time is a solitary activity. Often, we are working on things that nobody knows about, or have earned ourselves accolades that we don't really share.


Thanks for taking a minute to see what I'm up to in my creative world!

Typing on a Typewriter

Writing Projects

Over the past three years, I've written three full books and 1/2 of a fourth. That sounds like a lot of writing...and it is!

Rather than rush into publishing, I'm learning and growing as a writer. I want my debut novel to be the best piece of creative work I can produce!

I gravitate toward mysteries with a cozy landscape because they allow the reader to escape into a world where most people are friendly and justice always reigns. And boy do I love a good small town! My hopeful debut will introduce a reluctant heroine with a crew of unusual sidekicks who will steal your heart. I can't wait to share these friends with the world!
