It has been such a joy and wonderful experience writing my first book. I was born and raised in Burlington, North
Carolina. I am now married and live in River Bend, North Carolina with my wonderful husband Tommy. We have one daughter and
son-in-law, and now one beautiful grandson, Noah, who was born August 16, 2007. He weighed 6 pounds and 11 ounces. He is definitely
the joy of my life. Hard to believe you can love someone so much so soon, but after all, isn't love great.
I am also a registered nurse with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Public Health. I have always worked in
the medical field and have always enjoyed helping people. I work for the State of North Carolina and really enjoy what I do.
Writing has always been such a big part of my life. It all started in my journalism class in high school. I
found it so much easier to express myself through poetry. So in 1996, I decided to send in a poem, The Little
Fat Rat, to the National Library of Poetry. To my surprise, the poem was not only published, but it
also received the Editor’s Choice Award as well.
A Love That Never Dies is my first published book. There will be a sequel to this one, so watch my site for information
on it. I am also currently working on a couple of other books as well. Keep your eyes open and watch my websites
for upcoming events. You never know when I may be in your area for a book signing.
