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!


Humor, common sense, and godly living are the legacy my elders left me and I seek to pass on. What is your legacy?


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!"
