Why I Started Writing:
I started writing when I was in middle school and actually won a poem contest. In college, I dreamed of writing a book someday. I loved reading and became a reading/writing specialist in middle school. One of my projects I assigned for my students was to write a short story in each genre of literature.
Authors Who Have Influenced Me:
The authors who have influenced me the most are first, Richard Paul Evans. I loved his books because he always had a message of redemption entwined in his stories. My husband and I were blessed last year to join him on a cruise to Cabo San Lucas, the setting for one of his novels. Richard held a writers' conference right there on the boat. The other author who inspired me was Karen Kingsbury. Her book Divine was my favorite.
Books I Have Written:
The books I have written are: Mama, I Want to be Like You, Honor Yourself—You Are Highly Favored and Loved, and God’s Lent Child.
What I'm Working On Now:
Right now I am working with Elk Lake Publishing to get my book Shattered Innocence: A Journey to Restoration ready for publication.
