My first book was called The Princess and the Gold.  I wrote it when I was five.   (I still have it.)  I haven't stopped writing since.   :)

I have written for many publications on topics such as adoption, transracial adoption, open adoption, adoption ethics, diabetes, nutrition, exercise, patient care, empathy, race-relations, motherhood, special needs, and teaching.

I write.  A lot.   And I love it.  This is what I was born to do.

Links to my four books can be found on the main page.  If you've read one (or two, or three, or all four), I'd love for you to leave a review on Amazon!
