I’m a wife of over 24 years, a mom and step mom. I love to cook; homemade soups and developing my own cookies are what I do best. My love of gardening and outdoor spaces came on slowly, and grew into a favorite pastime for me. After discovering how helpful Youtube could be, I immersed myself in how-to gardening videos and books on the subject. I even entered my neighborhood's annual patio contest and placed. The feeling of accomplishment through utter determination on something I knew nothing about took me by complete surprise and my journey to becoming an adept gardener began. My favorite flowers are hydrangeas and daylilies. 

This is also the same route I took when I began writing Christian books. It all began slowly, with me writing about the happenings in my life and/or what I witnessed. I enjoyed detailing and describing the surroundings of my characters, so my readers would feel as if they're part of my poem or short story. Not long thereafter, I began developing and writing about two adolescent best friends. I knew right away that I wanted the races to be different, and for the reader to experience the characters as they begin building a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Frankie & Abby books have brought me so much joy and have afforded me the opportunity to share their story in churches, schools, community centers, etc. Currently, I attend Olivet Missionary Baptist Church, and my spiritual leader is Pastor Wayne Moore.
