Hello and thank you for visiting my page. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a wife to a wonderful man, a mom to two men, both of whom I am very proud and a ‘mommy’ to two great dogs. Yes, I am one of those who love their pets like children. I became a born-again Christian about ten years ago. I was far from God for a long time and only by divine providence, survived many poor decisions on my part. I attended college at the age of about 40, and received my paralegal degree. After much encouragement from my husband, I left my job waiting tables and applied for a job with the state as a part-time clerk. The rest, as they say, is history. I am now a legal secretary, but my passion is writing.
I have recently published a novel that I had been working on for the past four years and I cannot tell you how relieved and happy I was when I held my first author’s copy in my hands. It was the thing I had thought about, dreamed about, obsessed about. The thing that caused me at times to alienate my family and husband. But the story was in my head and I had to get it out. There is something else about the book that must be mentioned. I had always felt that God was moving me to write it. At first I thought, ‘No, why would He want me to write a book like that?’ However the deeper I delved into it, the more it became apparent that it was our story, not just mine. I mention this in the Preface, that everytime I questioned my motives for the book, something would happen that encouraged me. For instance, one day, I was so desperate for an answer that I literally lay prostrate on the floor and prayed so hard. ‘Lord, tell me is this something you want me to do? I need to know whether this is coming from you.’ The next day I received a phone call from a Christian self-publishing company I had contacted several months prior looking for information. They wanted to know if I was interested in publishing. At another time, I again questioned my motives and my daily Bible verse said to use the gifts that God has given us to further His kingdom. So, there you have it. There were many other incidences where He told me in no uncertain terms that the book needed to be written. No one can say whether it will sell well, and to be perfectly honest, that is not the goal. It would be nice if it would become a bestseller, after all what writer would not want their work to become a bestseller. No, my greatest desire for the book is that it would touch someone and let them know that God is a loving God and He is above all. To let someone know that no matter what happens, He is there with us even if it feels as though we are all alone.
In reading this, I hope you were able to learn a little more about me, but more than that, I hope you were intrigued enough to take a look at the book and consider a purchase to enjoy yourself and then share with someone else.
Thank you for your time. May God bless you and keep you safe.
