New book...new contest!


I am happy to announce the release of my new book EMILY'S ART AND SOUL for the kindle and nook. You can also pre-order the paperback at a discounted price.

Emily's life "to do" list never included her mentally challenged sister moving in with her. Then again, getting a divorce or moving to a different town for a new teaching job wasn't on her list either. But a lot of things change when your mother dies. Sometimes unexpected changes can bring new self revelations and unexpected turns. Emily's best friend, Andi stands patiently by as Emily discovers her new found sexuality and sets out to explore the world of loving women. But will Emily see what's right in front of her before it's too late?

When Hope began to inspire other feelings beyond the art, Carrie decided to keep it a secret. She didn't know Hope had a secret or two of her own.
