I published my first novel!


Check it out online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the Apple store.

There are some wonderful recipes in the back of the book, all centered around chocolate. Naturally.

This story is written primarily for women who find themselves broken because of life. This book deals with death, infertility, infidelity, relationships, marriage, and parenting. There is no foul language or explicit material. There are a number of reviews on Amazon; I hope you’ll read them and decide to read the book, too.

My newest novel  “The Yellow Ribbon Chronicles” will be available in mid-2015.

Are you new here? Hi! How are you and how was your day? You will find the good, the bad, and the ugly here. We are going to have real conversations about our lives. I will share my struggles and my triumphs with you and hope you’ll do the same. It’s so common to respond “Oh, I’m busy” when someone asks you how you’re doing.

Don’t be busy, be fruitful.

I hope to make this site a positive experience, even if I’m an audience of one (me). I will allow no profanity or personal attacks; there’s enough out there, we don’t need it in here. As a subscriber/viewer/reader of my site, I consider you my friend and perhaps one day we can sit around a table with some great food and share great conversation together!

Who’s coming for dinner? Read my blog post about why the earth is too small for private dinner parties. I would love to hear your thoughts about it.

Please note that although I have always been familiar and comfortable in the kitchen, I am still learning my way around this site. Be patient and let me know when you encounter any issues. I would really appreciate it!
