Welcome to my page.
My greatest joy after publication is knowing that a reader enjoyed the journey through my book, empathized with my characters' plight, shared their joy, felt their pain, and celebrated their victory as though it were their own. Each time I sit down with those who would have me write their story, I listen intently to the voices that express who they are, how they feel, what they fear, and what they dream. To me, they become real, and from day one of writing, I strive to pass that feeling onto you.
My writing journey began when I saved a discarded book from an early death on a rain-drenched sidewalk. I took it home, nursed it back to health (well, as much health as can be expected), and read it. With a simple "I can do that" and after many years of learning and practice (with much help from my more experienced writer friends), I realized my goal of completing several novels and achieving publication.
I'm a past member of RWA and a current member of two real time writer groups, the Greensburg Writers and Three River Writers. I also belong to many online groups: WRDF, Historical Romance Writers, several Yahoo groups, and others I can't remember at the moment. :) Be sure to visit my website and MySpace page.
