Welcome to my website

I'm often asked who I write for. Well, I write for women and men, old and young, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives and people of all cultures. I'm asked why I write. I write because couldn't find my world on the pages of the books I was given. So I started writing my own. This web site is the story of that journey. I hope you'll come back and visit often.
