My passion for stories has been with me since childhood.  And I always wanted to be a writer.  But when my young husband died of cancer at 30, leaving me with two young children and debts, I began writing to deal with grief when crying wasn’t enough.   Each of my seven novels became internationally celebrated providing an outlet for messages of truth, reality, adventure, hope and self-empowerment.

Most of the novels were written in the 1980s.  And over the years my dream was to have them recorded as audio books.  But my books were published by various publishers and I was unable to go to one publishing house and ask them to reissue my body of work.  And the novels felt dated, out of sync with todays world.  Then came the pandemic and I was home. So I rewrote all 7 books bringing them up to today.

I worked with a designer to create new covers for these new versions and found An incredible company to turn them into into audiobooks.

My books are all one of a kind, stand alone novels, written with unique main characters. So you

may read them in any order you wish. And to those of you who may have read some or all of these books, they are truly new versions.

As I look back at my body of work, I realize that 6 of the novels have similar themes, my protagonists face some of life’s major obstacles with unsurmountable odds and yet somehow they succeed in overcoming what life has placed in their paths and eventually triumph.  A struggle I had lived myself. I thought I was writing totally different books, but my subconscious knew differently.

I want to thank my brilliant narrators and One night Stand Audio Book Productions.
