Author Bio:

Born and raised in central Mississippi, I did not grow up in either a city or the country, so I consider myself a "town girl." I have been employed for more than 20 years by the Mississippi House of Representatives, where I currently serve as Assistant Clerk. When I took over the care of my mother, after the sudden death of my father, I rediscovered a thirst for writing. My brother was instrumental in pointing me toward a writing class taught by best-selling author, Aaron McCarver. I am an original member of a local Christian fiction writers' group, The Bards of Faith. Aaron and I have completed 2 three-book series for Heartsong Presents and we are currently working on a new series for Barbour Publishing.
