Welcome to my little corner of the internet! Come join me on my author journey!


My greatest desire is to bring entertaining stories into the world and I hope that my imagination will inspire yours.


Whether it be discussing books, writing, or life in general, I'd love to connect with you and maybe chat a bit.


After writing, my second passion is photography and I'm excited to be able to share some of my work with you on this site.

“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”
– Dr Seuss

The Three Ps


Anything worth having or doing usually takes a lot of work and it's going to require a significant amount of patience before you'll get where you want to go.


No matter what, you must keep going. This applies to everything in life. Whatever the issue, keep moving forward.


Anything is possible. Believing that you can is the first step. Knowing that you will comes from trusting in your abilities and making the choice to continue on.

Check out this video from Bethany Atazadeh!

I really enjoyed this video because there are some hilarious truths in it! Authors tend to get some very personal or nosy questions when people find out we’ve written a book and it can be hard to know how to respond gracefully. These amazing ladies tackle this topic with a bit of humor for your enjoyment. Whether you’re an author or not, it’s worth a  watch!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
