I was born in Illinois. I wouldn't say that my first career choice was writing novels. I saw myself working as a journalist for a local newspaper. I served as a sports editor for the student paper and later as the news editor in college. But my writing path took a detour when I completed my first manuscript. Now, I can't imagine not crafting stories for women that bring characters to life—characters who face natural obstacles, cross complex barriers to find love, and discover all the beautiful possibilities that life can offer.

What Else?

I've penned six women's fiction novels. I've been featured on television stations such as Fox, NBC, CBS, and in print and online magazines including USA Today, Wednesday Journal, AJC, Southern Writers Magazine, West Suburban Living, Voyage Atlanta, Shoutout Atlanta, and Black Enterprise.

My Super-Proud Moment:

My latest novel, The Caged Butterfly, received the USA Best Book Fiction Award for African-American Fiction.

My Other Super-Proud Moments: 

I received the AALBC Bestseller Award, the USA Best Book Finalist Award (twice), the Sankofa Literary Society Award, and my book "I Believe In Butterflies," I ranked among the top 100 Most Popular Authors in Literary Fiction on Amazon.

My Biggest Supporter:

My husband of over 20 years. We currently live in a suburb of Atlanta. 

A Few of My Favorite Things:

Watching movies such as Pride and Prejudice and eating popcorn, which I believe should be a vegetable.
