Life often plots our journey so much better than we ever could. The first line of my attempted romance novel, “Widowhood is so much more respectable, Destinee thought, as she loaded the gun,” should have given me a hint that romance really wasn’t my niche since killing the hero on page one is frowned upon.

Now that I’m in my forties, I am much more comfortable writing women’s fiction. I aspire to write my novels like Melissa Etheridge sings… not always pretty, but raw and from the gut. My first book, Searching for Julia Stone, was released on January 15, 2012 by Raven’s Wing Books, an imprint of  Grey Gate Media,LLC.

Please check back to this site, as it will evolve as I do and as I have more information on my novel and will eventually have more information on other projects I am working on.
