Meet the Author

I love everything about reading.  I love the weight of a book in my hands.  I love the way words create pictures in my head and bring me to another world.  I love how books teach me about life and love and who I am and who I want to be.  

As a kid I couldn't help reading all day.  I hid my book under my desk and read in class.  I read as I walked home from school, always slightly surprised out of my reverie by the elderly lady in the neighborhood who announced: "There goes the bookworm again!"  

I had reading parties with my siblings.  The five of us piled on top of each other like kindling in a fire, our limbs touching as our minds burned with the need to read.   After bedtime I read with a flashlight, my book hidden under the covers as I forced myself to stay awake for just one more page.


My love of reading made writing a necessity.  If only I could write things in a way that would help people want to crawl inside my book and never leave!  I hope you enjoy my books. Thanks for visiting!
