In the course of my life, I’ve always had a passion for the creative arts. I believed that one day I’d be a singer with songs on the radio, and that I’d be touring from state to state–or perhaps even country to country–performing songs I’d written. However, our lives don’t always follow the paths we assume they will.
I had a dream in November of 2010 in which I was instructed by a college professor to write a romance novel based in a time of civil unrest. In my dream, I was excited about the project, went home from school, and immediately began writing my novel. The story took place in Mobile, Alabama after the end of the Civil War. When I woke, I remembered everything: the characters, the plot, etc. So, after pestering my coworkers with the details of my dream, they encouraged me to write it down.
I wrote with a manic passion that eventually put three full novels on paper, each one having more than 190,000 words! And…I finished all three in less than a year’s time.
Since then, I’ve honed my skill. I’ve dug deep into my craft and grasped onto everything I could learn about writing. Much of what I’ve learned came from workshops I attended through Romance Writers of America and my local chapter, Music City Romance Writers. I’ve met many incredible authors who’ve inspired and encouraged me to keep writing. I can never thank them enough!
In June of 2014, my debut novel, “Marked,” was published. It’s set in 1850 and the majority of the story takes place on a Mississippi River steamboat called the Bonny Lass. Please check out my book tab for more information on this story as well as details about my other books available from Amazon.
I hope you’ll enjoy following my journey. Like life itself, writing is a great adventure!
