Welcome to my world. Thank you for spending a few moments with me to learn why I write the kind of books I write.
Writers have a responsibility to society. When we go to the grocery store we have a right to expect the grocers to provide food that does not contaminate our body with salmonella or E coli. Likewise, we as readers expect authors to provide books for us that do not pollute our minds and souls with profanity, filthy language and graphic sex.
My books cover the gamut of emotions, but the passion stops at the heart. I write novels that entertain, uplift and leave the reader with a feeling of hope. They’re novels of romance, mystery and morals. I have been pleasantly surprised to find that my novels appeal to readers of all ages . . . all those who love a good story with memorable plot and characters.
I believe that in good fiction Christian morals and principles can be woven into the fabric of the story so that they are absorbed almost unconsciously, expecially by younger readers, yet do not come over in a jarring nor overly religious way for older readers.
I have received letters and emails from readers who tell me that my books stand out above others because, as several put it, they have layers. One reader reported having read one of the books eleven times. The eleventh time was in the bathtub where the overly read book fell apart into the water. She was disconsolate until she obtained another one.
How gratifying for an author to hear. I love what I do. At six o’clock in the evening my husband often appears at my office door and plaintively asks “Are we going to have dinner tonight?”
I look in disbelief at my watch and ask, “Is it that time already?”
