After writing my humorous novel, Things Church Girls Don't Talk About, I may never be able to do church again!


Background Information

I was raised by a Southerner, "Mama Dot" who taught me to shell butter beans with the best of them and to say pithy things like, "Bless your heart" and "O' dem golden slippers", while drinking a glass of sweet tea, of course.  As to things that have motivated my writing, I would definitely say.. . . depression, spiritual abuse, parenthood, bullies, injustice, adoption, boredom and God--and not necessarily in that order.  Other than the skill with the butter beans, I have been to undergraduate and graduate school and ended up working as a counselor, praise and worship leader, teacher, speaker, program manager and a long time ago--a gal on roller skates who did singing telegrams as Dolly Parton.  When I am not watching as much of House MD as I possibly can, I can be found writing about whatever strikes my fancy, like. . . what happens to those socks that go missing in the dryer?. . .  

Birth Place
Alabaster, AL USA
Accomplishments

I have two ordination papers framed on my wall. . . one as a deacon and the other as a priest. . . oh yes, they are mine--from the Ceec.

Additional Information

Please check out my new novel, Things Church Girls Don’t Talk About. It is a comical, yet poignant story of a young church girl and her mother in search of true faith amidst a sea of toxic religion and eccentric Southern characters. Meet Mama Clarisse, whose sass gets her onto trouble when she announces her husband’s adultery at his surprise birthday party. Enjoy the antics of her sister, Justine who gets tipsy and does a “tell off” to her brother-in-laws bow-legged mistress at his funeral. Sympathize with Maggie as she tries to win the love of her cold Irish Father before he dies. Scoff at the narcissism of Jimmy Ray, a quirky preacher with a PH.D—Pentecostal hair do. If you have a bone to pick with religion or even if you don’t, you will be wooed by this charming and powerful tale of how mercy triumphs over judgment.
