stories about women searching for truth in life and love

my definition of success: when every day feels like saturday
I am a writer of women's fiction and of stories about women searching for truth in life and love. I am currently working on revisions of my first novel in preparation for submission to publishers, and in the meantime, I blog about my journey toward a well-balanced life and a career in publishing--my struggles and successes along the way. Sometimes I post short fiction and some words of encouragement in the same way I encourage my characters--to grow, find balance, strive for success (however you define success), and search for happiness. No, more than happiness--genuine passion for a full life.

Below are the links to my recent news and blogs. I hope you'll subscribe to my newsletter, leave a comment, and find me online. I love to connect and hear your stories too!
