Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. I'll start with a little of my background. I've always been interested in writing, although it took me a little while to get started. I took a few courses and attended some writing seminars, but raising four daughters and running a business with my husband didn't leave me much time for pursuing that dream.
In 2008, after the girls were all grown and I found myself with some time on my hands, I began my new career as a writer. I was very interested in writing screenplays, so I spent several months studying creative writing, screenplay formatting, and brushing up on grammar skills. Four completed screenplays later, I set out to begin writing a novel.
Again, I spent some time reading books on writing novels, which is very different from writing screenplays. In a screenplay, the writer has the use of mainly dialogue and action to convey what the characters are thinking and what is going on in the story. I really enjoyed the aspect of being able to communicate to the reader through narrative what the characters are thinking and feeling, important events from the past that pertain to the story, as well as some of my own thoughts and beliefs that I believe many authors weave into their stories.
I have completed two novels, which are both for sale at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. My writing has turned into a fun adventure for me as well as my family. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, Dan, four beautiful daughters, Jenny, Julie, Katy, and Kim, three great sons-in-law, Rick, Danny, and Rich, and our precious grandson, Danny. Along with a large extended family including my mother, sisters, sisters-in-law, and brothers-in-law, as well as many good friends, I am truly grateful for all of the support I've received during the past few years. The exciting journey continues!
