My Debut Novel is Finally Available!!!


I’m finally a published author!


After 15 + years of fearing, holding back, waiting for the right time, etc. I took the leap and wrote my first novel.



It’s an excitement I can also share with my teenage daughter. At 13, she is a published illustrator – drawing not only the cover art, but all of the inside illustrations as well! I am so proud of her.


My novel is currently available in paperback and hardback. The e-book format will be ready for purchase in another 4 weeks.


Here’s the links where it can be purchased:


Abbott Press website




Barnes & Noble website

Let’s try some more formula poetry!



Fibonacci poetry is harder to write than you first think! This one is my meager first attempt. I got the idea from a fellow poet. If you’re interested in learning the “rules” of this style of poetry, then check out his article. For those of you who appreciate formula poetry writing like haiku, this is right up your alley!

Part Two of Emma’s Story


Sara: A Christmas Story

After many of my friends commented on The Room of Memory, I decided to continue Emma’s story focusing more on her relationship with her mother and building her mother’s own story as well. This sequel to The Room of Memory attempts to bring the reader closer to both ladies’ hearts.
