✭ I'm an Oklahoma girl gone the beautiful beaches of Galveston, Texas with my husband, son, three dogs, and two kitties. 〜 After my freshman year at the University of Oklahoma, I abandoned college life for a lucrative career in waitressing. One day—inspired by advice from family and an armed forces episode of Family Feud—I joined the Navy where, after two weeks of boot camp, I was diagnosed with a rare, incurable kidney disorder and honorably given the boot. 〜 Over the next two decades, I met and married my other half, Jeff…gave birth to our amazing son, Jack…and got a shiny new kidney from my best friend and now kid-sister, Robin. ♥ 〜 With this new chance at life, and an appreciation for everything and everyone around me, I rediscovered my passion for writing.....wrote and published my first novel...and now I'm writing its sequel!

Writing has become like breath to me. I have so many stories filling up my to-write list! I can't see myself ever putting down my pen until the last page in the book of my own life has been turned. ✭
