WHY I WRITE
I like to write stories that show the impossible becoming possible with resilience, creative ingenuity, and a firm hold on hope.
That's because I'm a big hope-clinger.
A steadfast believer.
A surveyor in relentless pursuit.
It also doesn't hurt to pack in a little bit of humor, too. Sometimes, a whole lot of it.
I hope that my readers will recognize that the strength in my characters is something that also lies in themselves, and that my books leave them feeling better for it.
