Why I Started Writing:
I have been writing since I was very young. I started with writing songs and poems. We moved a lot when I was growing up (over 20 times). This made making friends difficult. So, my friends were in the books I’d read and the stories I would create myself. I have one lifelong friend, Jill, who remembers my crazy imagination. We laugh today at the wild stories I’d tell.
Who Influenced My Writing:
A respected teacher from high school encouraged me to enter my poetry and short stories in a contest. That gave me the boost of confidence that maybe, just maybe I could write. Then, of course, there are other authors that have influenced me: Francine Rivers, Frank Peretti, Erin Magnum, C. S. Lewis, Ted Dekker, Flannery O’Conner, and Ray Bradbury.
Books I Have Written:
I just finished writing “book one” (entitled Secrets) of a three book YA supernatural series Beauties from Ashes. I also co-authored a devotional study journal based on the book of 2 Timothy entitled Legacy: Living NOW for Future Generations.
What I'm Working On Now:
I am almost finished with “book two” of the Beauties from Ashes YA supernatural series (working title Uninvited). My next project will be the final book in the series.
