Hi there,

Growing up, books were my sanctuary; my safe place. I write because I need to. I write children’s books because I want to.

I enjoy spending time with my husband, 2 kids, dogs, and plants – although sometimes I struggle to keep them alive (the plants that is).

I try to be funny, inspiring, and thought-provoking. Occasionally I succeed.

I believe in the power of books and people – both those who write them and those who read them.

And I believe there is great magic in even the smallest flicker of hope, love, and light.

HEADS UP (Seven Up): Having ADHD, my attention is given to oh-so-many things on a daily basis, and social media often struggles to make the list. Therefore, I recommend lowering any expectations you have for a more enjoyable experience. πŸ˜‰
