I was born in Philadelphia but spent the majority of my childhood and adult life in Atlanta. I married young and gave birth to seven wonderful children. My husband and I were way too young when we married and by the time we'd had seven children the marriage was over. I think, like a lot of women, I lost myself under the labels of wife and mother. But I found myself again when I found writing. The moment I sat down with a pen and a spiral notebook, (because we were too poor to own a computer,) I knew I'd found my passion. When I'm writing I'm happy. When I'm writing I'm fulfilled. That first little love story I began in that notebook, turned into many notebooks. I had no idea when I began that story I'd have an epic. Those notebooks translated into 1500 typed pages! At the time I knew nothing about the publishing industry. So when I approached a publisher with my giant manuscript I was extremely indignant when they laughed at me. Heck, I was thinking people would be getting a real deal... you know, so much book for their money! Lol That was many years ago. About the time my marriage was ending, I became the victim of a sexual assault. The writing became my therapy. I shared the stories with my friends and soon women and men alike were reading my books and begging for the next one. Even though I'm still searching for the right agent and publisher I don't let that stop me. I'd love to share my stories with you. Visit my website!
