ABOUT ME

I'm a native North Carolinian, but I spent the last thirty years in Orlando, Florida as a homeschool mom or classroom math teacher.

So why write? Well, I had a few ideas I was noodling on and thought it would be fun to write a few books and then move on to do something else, but my writing journey took a different path.

I began learning the craft through an organization called Word Weavers International.

I've had the privilege of serving on the Word Weavers International Advisory Committee and I'm the Mentoring Coordinator for Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers Conference where I also serve on the leadership team. Currently, I'm the Managing Editor for Harambee Press—Iron Stream Media’s ethnic voices imprint which seeks to publish ethnic writers. I also enjoy my time as a freelance writer with Guideposts.

I have a passion for seeing ethnic writers represented well in the publishing industry and I speak on this need whenever I'm offered the opportunity. One of my other passions is to coach and mentor writers.

This is a journey I never expected, but I've loved the highs and lows of being a writer and an editor.

As you continue (or enter) your desire to write, I hope I can share information and encouragement that will help you along your journey. 

Happy writing!
