Background Information

Born and raised in the Deep South, I grew up during the era of the Civil Rights Movement, integration, and Vietnam. I received a BS degree in biology and English in Texas, and later moved to Atlanta to work and pursue post graduate work at Georgia Tech. After working in the scientific field for twenty years, I turned my talents to writing fiction and nonfiction. My award winning nonfiction and poetry have been published in newspapers and magazines locally and nationally.

Through my storytelling, I tackle issues most people, especially Southerners, can identify with and, like me, may have struggled to understand. I enjoy writing stories and characters steeped in the lyrical traditions and mystical surroundings of the Deep South where I grew up.

A transplanted Texan, I live in Montana with my husband and two children. When not working on my next novel or article, I enjoy doing pet therapy work with my golden retriever, and volunteering in animal rescue.

 

Accomplishments

B.S. with honors in Biology and English
Texas Secondary Education Teaching Certificate
Texas Real Estate License
Golden Pen award for nonfiction

Additional Information

My novel, Breaking TWIG, is a top selling ebook on Amazon in historical and Southern fiction. SET in rural Georgia in the 1960s, BREAKING TWIG is a coming-of-age novel about Becky (Twig) Cooper, a young woman trying to survive the physical and emotional abuse of her mother, Helen, a beautiful, calculating woman who can, with a mere look, send the meanest cur in Sugardale, Georgia running for its life. Not even Twig's vivid imagination, keen wit, and dark sense of humor is enough to help her survive the escalating assaults of Helen and a new stepbrother, but help comes from an unexpected source--Frank, her stepfather. Sometimes, having one person who loves and believes in you is all a girl needs to keep hope alive. Often raw and irreverent and sprinkled with all the Southern flavoring found in a good bowl of chicken and dumplings, BREAKING TWIG, is about finding love where we least expect it, destroying lives with easy lies, and realizing each of us determine our own truth.
