1. When did you fall in love with books?
I fell in love with books in my early twenties. I was a young Army Officer stationed overseas. Books became my life for work and leisure.
2. When did you realize you wanted to write?
I knew that there was a book inside of me at age 22, but I didn’t find the passion to write until after I had experienced pain in my early thirties.
3. Tell us about yourself.
I am a homemaker, a veteran of the United States Army and an author. I love spending time with my family, friends and church family. When I am not serving others, I like catching up on my reading and writing.
4. Who are your favorite authors?
Valorie Burton, Michelle Mckinney Hammond, Stormie Omartian, Stephen Covey and John C. Maxwell.
5. What are your favorite books?
My favorite books are inspirational books and books on leadership.
6. Are you currently working on anything new?
If so, please give a brief synopsis and when should we expect it? My 2nd title is already out. It is an E-devotional, “Dig In” (September 2012) which samples some of my writing from “There Is a Miracle in 21: God Completes!” You can look for my 3rd title: “Seasoned for this Season” in December 2013 which will serve to encourage readers to put their dreams into action and make them reality.
7. What makes you unique as an author?
My varied experiences make me a unique author. I served in the Army as a Logistics Officer. However, my college degree is in Journalism. I have been an instructor in the Army as well as a substitute teacher and a Children’s Church Director. I’m a homemaker, but I spend numerous hours a week training, coaching and mentoring others. By gifting, I am an exhorter. And above it all, I am a child of God seeking to glorify Him in everything that I do.
8. Why should readers pick up your books?
Readers need my books because “I keep it real” while leaving the reader encouraged! I’m a real person with real struggles and real drama who relies on God to complete me.
