I am Southern
Which by definition means:

  • barbeque (we're talking
    Eastern North Carolina style
    with a vinegar base)
  • Pepsi-Cola
  • extended family circles
    (we're talking close knit third
    and fourth cousins, here)
  • butterbeans (that's Southern
    for lima beans)
  • hospitality
  • fried and sugared everything
I am a wife and mother
My husband and I have two daughters and make our home in the beautiful state of North Carolina.


I am a teacher
With a Master’s degree in history, I have taught at the university, high school and middle school levels. After years of church involvement as a soloist, choir member and worship leader, I now write full time and teach writing workshops.


I am a writer
Delighted by the rhythm and musicality of words, I have been writing since childhood. In 2001, I won the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) Story Writing Contest that re-ignited a lifelong love of writing.


I am on a journey of faith
My ultimate desire through my life and my writing is to proclaim the truth of God’s Word, His redeeming love as seen in the life of Jesus Christ and to help others know for themselves this great, awesome God of all comfort and wisdom. He is enough for every need.
