Writing about my forever home

As a journalist I was taught never to write about myself or from my perspective unless I was writing an opinion piece. Needless to say, writing about my husband’s and my decision to stay in our starter home, as a retirement planning tactic, was unchartered territory for me. However, I am proud of our decision and the resulting article. If you haven’t read the story, you can check it out on the U.S. Bank Newsroom.


Writing my first novel


I am refining the second draft of my first novel, The Cottage on Palm Court, a Southern paranormal romance. I would like to thank all of my beta readers, especially my husband, mother-in-law, sister and my dear friend and talented author, Kelly Stone Cramer. You have helped me take my first draft and turn it into a captivating manuscript. I am grateful for your support!

Stay tuned for more details about my novel. I am excited to see where this journey takes me!
