Novelist. Screenwriter. Consultant.

It’s official! Southern Girl has made the list of Top 10 Books of 2016 at The Lesbian Review!

Welcome to my website!

Thanks for stopping by! I realize you have a choice of websites, as well as airlines, so thanks for going on a little trip with me. I’m a writer and editor, author of three books and a screenwriting instructor. The Comfortable Shoe Diaries, my debut novel, which is available at Bella Books and Amazon, is a comedy that pokes fun at lesbians, relationships, and how online dating may or may not ruin your life. Hurricane Days, my second book, also from Bella, is about a wicked conservative GOP candidate with a really, really big skeleton in her closet. Southern Girl, my latest, is a coming-of-age tale that will surprise and shock you. 

While you’re here, check out my blog for writers and movie lovers, plus my running commentary on the good, the bad and ugly of being a writer. Also see the latest updates about my work. 

Last but not least, a special thank-you to all who entered the Goodreads Giveaway for Southern Girl. Congratulations to the seven winners! Happy holidays!

Southern Girl is now available to order!

THIS JUST IN: The Lambda Literary website has given Hurricane Days an amazing review! “Masterfully written …keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last few pages.”

Rainbow Book Reviews highly recommends Southern Girl: “There’s a smooth flow to this book, as well as excellent story-crafting that had me gripped and reading it through in only two sittings.”
