Welcome,  I always knew writing was in my future.  My passion for the art started in high school.  Some of the best memories of my childhood involved books -from weekly trips to the library with my best friend to my older sister reading poems by Paul Laurence Dunbar.  I was born and raised in the Midwest.  I am married with two adult children.  I graduated from Howard University in Washington, D.C.,  a location that fed my imagination for many of my early short stories.  Writing women's fiction is my first love.  When I am not writing or working as a nurse, I enjoy gardening, sewing, and of course, reading. I believe community outreach is an important part of being a human sharing this world.  I seek to add positivity to my environment and the people in it.  I began blogging as a way to spread a message of hope and positivity. I am currently working on my first novel. I hope my stories will help empower women to live a life untethered, and on their own terms.
