Book News!!! Book News!!! Book News!!!

I’ve been included with a group of wonderful authors and will have a book coming out next year.
Starting next year, the Apron Strings Series Books will be released, one a month. Pre-orders will be available earlier.

For each decade, there will be a different book beginning with a book set in the 1920s and ending with a book set in 2020. A single cookbook ties them all together, but the stories are about different women throughout time. My book will be set in the 1960s.

The lineup includes:

Naomi Musch, Amy Walsh, Jenny Knipfer, Patti Wolf, Jessica Marie Holt, Sandra Ardoin, Lisa R. Howeler, Dawn Klinge, Regina Walker, and Dawn Kinzer, and yours truly. I’m beyond the moon to be in such company.

Hope to see you there!



What I Write

I write upmarket southern historical, contemporary young adult novels, and novels for the inspirational and general market.

My stories are about people facing tough times. Not all of my books have romance, but when they do the romances are sweet. No graphic language, sex, or violence, just plenty of heart tugging emotion. My female leads are strong, if flawed. Endings aren’t sugar coated, but I always strive to leave my readers with a sense of hope.

Life is messy and beautiful. In everyone’s story there is truth and hope. My novels are about common struggles and finding the faith to carry on through those battles.
