Alive! Scrappy, Skillful, Restrained, Polished. Fiery and Fierce at Times. Always Observant. Always Loyal.

Thanks to all who spread the word on my Pubslush crowdfunding campaign. My first romance novel, Everlasting Love, is now on Amazon! I'm now working on the second in the series and the setting will be Breezy Bay Island, a fictional Florida island. The heroine will have a difficult past and a secret, but she's an overcomer.

We've all faced hardships and at times life tends to smack us right in the face with its knuckle, curve, and fastballs. Amen? We have no choice but to step back and catch our breath.

In 2014, almost a year to the day after my husband's stroke, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This is the first time that I've mentioned my diagnosis. I've been quiet because I just didn't have the strength to keep up with everything while fighting through surgery and chemotherapy treatments. The regimen finally completed, I'm extremely thankful for a second chance at life.

Faith in a God who cares for us has provided strength for our journey, and we have witnessed many miracles firsthand in the last two years. And, yes! I lost all my hair and sometimes wish I could keep it that way. Men have it so easy. ;)
