Greetings from East Texas! I live in a 100 year old farmhouse (complete with a front porch and white picket fence) with one amazing husband, a phobia-ridden cat, and a garden full of flowers, hummingbirds and butterflies. (I'll leave out the giant mosquitoes!) I'm the proud mother of two wonderful sons, and (as of the summer of 2007) the daughter of my prayers. And in 2009, I experienced the joy of all joys and became a Nana to the most beautiful grandson the world has ever known. A teacher by profession, I'm currently teaching private voice and piano and pursuing my lifelong dream of being a writer.
My first novel, Texas Roads, was chosen as a finalist in the ACFW 2009 Genesis contest in the Contemporary Romance division. In May 2009, my devotional “The Battle Is The Lord’s” was published in Spirit & Heart: A Devotional Journey (Lighthouse Publishing), a book available through major retailers. Lighthouse Publishing also used another devotional in their January 2010 book release entitled Faith & Finances: In God We Trust. A devotion has also been contracted through The Upper Room magazine for publication in July-August 2010.
In my spare time (ha!) I enjoy walking, bike riding, gardening, watching movies or reality TV, and of course, reading.
