Behind the Author

I've always loved writing. Ever since I was a little girl, I've written stories, poetry, and kept a journal. I still remember my first story about a young flower and life in the garden with her family. I was seven. 

Throughout high school and college, I excelled at writing and thoroughly enjoyed it. As an elementary and middle school teacher, for more than 2o years, I have loved guiding and encouraging my students to express themselves through writing. During those years, I wrote in private, keeping my hopes and dreams to myself. 

It happened one day, a couple of years ago when I could no longer ignore my passion. The once, little voice inside whispering, reminding me of my passion, grew louder and insisted I follow my dream. My dream of writing for others, to encourage and inspire is finally a reality.

My first published book was inspired by my daughter. Have a Little Faith is a children’s book about a young girl with Down syndrome who lives her life enjoying many of the things that all other children enjoy doing. The book is open about the challenges she faces and ensures readers that beyond these day-to-day obstacles she is just like anyone else.

I'm working on book number two, adult non-fiction, inspired by my father. And I currently write for two blogs. I'm always exploring new themes, genres, and ideas. It’s incredibly hard work, but I am happy to sit down with my journal or my computer and finally share my words with the world.
