Background Information

~ Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity ~ Oprah Winfrey

I have always enjoyed writing (poetry & song lyrics mostly) for as far back as I can remember. My mother has been and will forever be the driving force behind my love for writing, and even though she passed away many years ago, I truly feel her presence in any writing project I undertake. Several of my poems were written especially for "My Beautiful Mother, Mary."

My (4) book Lambert series; "THIEF OF HEARTS" "FORBIDDEN" "FRIENDLY ENEMIES" and "LE FIN" was my first major attempt at serious writing.

What started off as a joke between two sisters and one book turned into a (4) book series. (Who knew?   ...smile.)

One afternoon while visiting my sister, Brenda, she glanced in my direction,shaking her head with distaste (upset over where the direction the story line in her favorite soap opera was heading), she said. "They need to replace the writers on this show. Anyone could do a better job than the writers they have now!" She rolled her eyes and went on. "Hey Sis, I've got an idea, why don't you write a storyline for 'Days Of Our Lives' and send it to them?" She smiled and slightly blushed at the same time after realizing how her intended compliment may have sounded. An errie moment of silence followed as I considered the suggestion. I returned the smile and my four word response was simply. "Thank you I think!" Three months later, "Thief of Hearts" was complete followed by another fifteen months and three follow-up visits to my makebelieve island paradise of Lambert with a (4) book romantic-suspense series. Believe me 'NO ONE' was more surprised than I!

Accomplishments

Published author of over (400) poems/song lyrics, nominated poet of the year 1990-2012 by "The International Library of Poetry" & "Famous Poet Society". Many of my poems are featured in numerous hard copy anthologies and I have received national recognition by a committee that represents "Outstanding Young Women In America." Some of my poetry can be viewed online at the International Library of Poetry Website or right here on Authors Den.
