Do you like being a cat owner? Why or why not?

I do enjoy being a cat owner. Our cat can be very entertaining, but he can be very messy as well.


Would you want to own a different kind of pet?

Lately I’ve been wondering if we should get a dog.


If you could own any type of animal in the world what would it be and why?

I’d own a giraffe because they are my spirit animal. One day I hope I get to meet one up close.


What is your favorite holiday? Why is it your favorite?

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I love the colors, the feel of being spooked.


What is your favorite room in your house?

Probably my little office nook.


If you could have any career what would it be?

The dream has always been to be a best-selling author.


What is your hobby?

I write, I read, I watch YouTube videos. I craft and most of all I plan in my Happy Planner.


What is your favorite store?

That’s a three-way tie between Barnes and Noble, Michaels and Home Goods


What is your favorite sport?

To watch; Nascar. I don’t participate in sports lol


What is your favorite object in your house?

My desk. It was a Christmas gift from when I was a kid. It’s got a lot of amazing memories tied to it.


Would you rather eat at home or at a restaurant? If at home, what would you eat? If at a restaurant, where would you go?

At a restaurant, hands down. And I’d go to a good Mexican restaurant.


What chore would you do most and what chore would you do least?

I’d say organizing is what I do most. And I do everything else least. I despise dishes, laundry and cooking most of all.


Where is your favorite destination?

Absolutely Disney. I also love to be near water, but not necessarily in it. If we’re talking global travel, it’s a dream to visit Australia.


If you could draw anything what would you draw?

I cannot draw at all, but if I could I’d like to be able to illustrate children’s books.


Would you write with a typewriter or a quill?

Excellent question. I do love a typewriter, but I’ve never written with a quill, so that could be fun.

Mr. Brownie Bear. A stuffed teddy bear that my Nana owned and eventually gave to me.

Local Author Fair

I had the privilege to be apart of our hometown library Local Author Fair on January 21, 2017. It was wonderful to see our community support all of our local authors.

The display created to show off the Destined Series: Destined, Endless, Undeniable and Entirely, was a labor of love and received treasured compliments.

Thank you to all that stopped by and said hello, it was a wonderful experience!

Vote for my entry in the presented #TheWriteSpace photo contest. This contest supports authors and National Novel Writing Month.

The photo contest asks for entries showcasing the writer’s favorite place to write and why they find it inspirational. My entry is a photo of the hard copy of my latest work because I find inspiration everywhere and it can hit at any time. I have written in waiting rooms and at stop lights. When it strikes, there is nothing like putting pen to paper.
