About Me: Writing To Create,Inspire, Challenge & Entertain.


I sometimes describe myself as an Italian Hillbilly honoring my mother’s heritage and father’s southern roots. It started when I was 7 years old and became passionately enthralled with Elvis Presley. I’m proud to say I still am.  My Nanna asked if I understood him when he sang, “Of Course.” I replied and she said, “It must be the hillbilly in you.”

As a single mom, I raised my two children in a small, no fuss, no frills cottage in Indian Rocks Beach, which I still own. Whether basking in the sun with sand in- between my toes or walking on the beach enjoying the sunset, the heart of my stories were created in this magical space. I still use it as my writer’s escape.

My husband and I live in an active golf community with two cats. Together, our extended family includes 5 grown children, 3 beautiful granddaughters and several canines. My life is blessed with a loving family and loyal friends who support me.

I enjoy writing about strong female characters who overcome obstacles with dignity and perseverance. I believed in fairy tales as a child, and now as an adult, I feel confident that women can build their own dreams and follow their true destiny. With love and faith anything is possible.
