About Me


I'm an army brat, born in Nuremberg, Germany. When I was ten, my father was stationed in Toul, France where I discovered a treasure trove of books hiding in the furnace room. The house was rumored to be the former headquarters of the Nazi Party with bullet holes decorating the foyer as evidence. The books I found, sci-fi, mysteries, fantasy, and the classics, opened my mind to the power of story.

Raised on army bases, I've lived many places, none “home” until I returned to south Alabama. I live with my husband, three dogs, and two cats near the farms where my ancestors struggled to scratch a living from the ground.

I agree with Emily Dickinson who said, "I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it until it begins to shine."

I'm active in my community, heading up my local food bank with the help of my husband.
