"Be all that you can be!" That line has been a driving force in my life for as long as I can remember. I attribute those words to my mom who has been a great motivator and advisor to me.
I fell in love with books at a very early age. The school librarian read to us often and had such a sweet, soothing voice. In 9th grade, my English teacher became my confidante. She would read my poetry and short stories and give me invaluable advice. I am so grateful to have had the privilege of having significant people in my life who have helped me stay on the right path and on the road to success.
Coming from a family of educators, I gained a Bachelor's Degree from Presbyterian College. I have taught school for a number of years - 4th and 5th grades and currently 7th and 8th grades. I was very fortunate to teach the subject that I love - Language Arts! I tell my students often to "reach for the stars because dreams really do come true."
I am the author of the novel, Perfect Love, published by Dreams Publishing Company. It is the story of Will, a man who loves his family with all his heart. His wife Cleotyne, a singing sensation, tours the world over, leaving him behind to raise their young daughter, Breanna, alone. One day Cleotyne returns home unexpectedly, but with a secret that may change all their lives forever. However, through trials and tribulations and ups and downs, Will and Cleotyne discover that their love is binding and everlasting - no matter what happens - a perfect love!
