Author/Becoming Me

As a wife, aunt, nurse, author, musician,  speaker, and daughter of the Most High God, I wear many hats, some of them quirky!

Double Cousins

The Double Cousins Mystery Series for 7-13 year old’s is born out of childhood experiences and grown-up dreams!

At my core I am a storyteller and encourager. Speaking allows me to use both of my God-given gifts.

"AIM High! Affirm – Inspire – Motivate legacy building!"

After all, we have released four books in the past 15 months. (Yes, we did that crazy thing.) Now it is time to sell some books. My...
