"Writing to Creatively Touch the Soul"

Love, Romance, Mystery...


Captured Hearts

"This riveting, fast paced and outstanding romance/mystery keeps the reader's interest from page one until you read the last page and hope that she will bring Julian and the rest of the characters back for a sequel. This novel is far superior to any that I have reviewed in the past as the author creates a relationship between two people that is beautifully crafted, tastefully written and provides the perfect balance between mystery and romance."

Hello ,
I'm delighted you're taking the time to visit my site. Please bear with as changes are being made to my site. Browse and I hope you like what you see so far. I just added a blog page. I will share writing tips, information for writers, news links, recipes when I discover a dish that looks tasty. I love to cruise so I will share tips for first-time cruisers as we get close to vacation time. I'll share my opinion at times.
I've written two are romance novels and my third book is my memoir. I'm currently editing my next novel. I write about strong women, love, and relationships. I write to portray positive role models. That doesn't mean my characters don't have drama. They encounter obstacles, the challenge is how they will overcome them.
One of my future projects will be a non-fiction book.
I look forward to connecting with you.

Read Excerpt

Mother's Love
THERE IS NO MATCH and there is no substitute for a mother's love. Your child knew how blessed he or she was to have you from the at he or she was born. Just think back to how your child looked at you when you held him or her in your arms. He stares into your eyes with a sweet look of innocence. She I snuggled in your arms. He is in your care. She trusts you not to let any harm come to her.
Your child may put you to the test several times before he is grown ad sometimes even after, but looking back there is a possibility you did the same thing to your mother. I think we have to let them be who they were meant to be. We have no real control over how they ultimately choose to live their lives. All we can do is guide them and pray with faith they will go in the right path.
