BIOGRAPHY Writing Christian Romance Suspense with a bit of mystery and as much humor as I can get in, my writing career started in 2005 and is now full-time.
My stories are about realistic people who have problems, fears, and hangups like the rest of us. They must deal with those drawbacks while also dealing with people who impose their own wishes and desires on them. And to the point of danger.
As I have experienced myself, my characters find it difficult sometimes to trust in God when going through trials, and yet they know they must for the resolution. I love to show how God's grace and mercy are there when you need it the most.
