Ten years ago I endured six months of emotional highs and lows, the likes of which sent me straight to a mid-life crisis at the tender age of twenty-five. A little premature to be certain, but after enduring several family tragedies and an undue amount of stress, I began to question the direction of my life. After much introspection, I returned to my love of writing and with fortitude began my career as a novelist.
I write women's fiction, drawing on my childhood and adult experiences and always setting my stories in rural IL as I grew up in a far west suburb of Chicago. I currently have three novels: The Ugly Tree, Fixing Forever Broken, and Falling to Him. I'm working on my fourth novel and looking to have The Ugly Tree made into a motion picture!
