Why I write…
When faced with the tragic loss of my husband in 2018, my dearest friend challenged me to take a break and write for my soul. There was one rule: find joy in what you are writing. What started as a means to survive trauma evolved into a way to heal. Today, writing serves as a gift, allowing me to tap into what really matters: creating a meaningful, happy, and magical life for my family. My daughter’s innocence and light inspire embrace uncertainty, break boundaries, and dream bigger. The result… stories to thrill, move, motivate, and entertain. Hope you enjoy!
