Hi and thanks for visiting with me.
My work has appeared in various journals and anthologies. I've received awards from the Writer's Digest and the Lorian Hemingway short fiction competitions.
My books, The Naked Gardener, Page Truly and The Journey To Nearandfar, Maybelle's Revenge, and Shelly's Second Chance, are available for Kindle at Amazon.com. Some are also available in print.
I'm an avid kayaker (touring) and grew up fishing in the Florida Keys.
Here's a tidbit of interest. My husband proposed on our first and only date and we were married five weeks later.
I hope you enjoy my books.

I had high hopes for this story because of all the five-star reviews and I am happy to say that Shelley's Second Chance met and even surpassed my expectations. Both the writing and editing were excellent and the imagery was both vivid and believable. All the characters had well-developed and three-dimensional personalities. Joe and Alanna (the Wish Granters) and Morgan (their boss) were totally original and I can't wait to read more about them to see how their relationships develop in the next books of this series. Shelley and Ben learn that a loving commitment is the only thing worth wishing for after a difficult journey that made for wonderful reading. This story really made an impression on me and pulled on my heartstrings, especially with the surprise ending. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a charming romantic fantasy.

Over a year after buying my first Kindle, it finally hit me in late October (yes, just a few weeks ago) that I could actually sit it on the little ledge on the control panel made for books. Not sure how it would work out, I was surprised after I started reading Shelly's Second Chance, to find that nearly ten minutes had passed. This was the point where I was usually ready to give up because I was bored out of my mind. To my further surprise, within about a week, I'd worked up to 25 minutes...because I wanted to see what happened next in the story...and I'd decided the first night to make this book my 'treadmill book.'

Obviously it was good enough that I started spending a lot more time on that piece of exercise equipment.

Why? Because it involves death...or maybe death, because we're not quite sure whether Joe and Alanna are entirely dead, or just on the verge of being dead. It also involves Shelly, a woman with a serious gambling problem. Honestly, I didn't especially like Shelly throughout most of the story...it was the wish granters who held my interest the most. And their guide, who apparently has a strong resemblance to Morgan Freeman.

There is also Shelly's fiance Ben, who I wasn't too sure about for the first half of the book. Fortunately both characters turned out to be people I could like and respect if they were real. Both of them grew and changed throughout the story, though it took some drastic circumstances to bring it about. Still, without motivation, no one would change, and I thought both were handled in realistic ways.

When we're first introduced to Joe and Alanna, they don't remember much about their lives on earth, but begin to recall some things as the pages turn.

This is a terrific book about choices. About telling the truth to your fiance and even to yourself. Shelly, the "heroine" and I say it like that because she's a flawed but likeable girl who's gotten herself into a jam, thinks her problem is money but it's really that she doesn't know what matters in life. In this time when so many people are playing the lottery and looking for a quick fix, this book is right on the money. It gets its point across without being preachy and in fact it's funny. Alanna and Joe are the wish granters who have been stuck together by their boss Morgan, a godlike figure named on his resemblance to Morgan Freeman. The three of them are an interesting team who I assume will travel through all the books in the series granting the wishes of women and maybe teaching them a little about life as they go.

I borrowed this book from the Amazon Prime lending library but ended up buying the second book.

This book introduces us to the Wish Granters and their boss they've named Morgan. In the very beginning it was a little confusing, but stick with it! This book is a great start to what I am hoping becomes a series with a lot of titles.

The main characters are finding their way as Wish Granters and finding more out about themselves along the way but what I liked best about this book was the fact that it really made me feel good. There is a lot of truth also in the book - truth about what's important in life etc.

Give it a try and you won't be sorry!

I read these books out of order, having downloaded book 2 when it was offered for free. I enjoyed that one enough that I sought out the first book in the series. I'm happy to say, I enjoyed this one as well. My only complaint was that the editor seemed to have given up around 77% of the book, and suddenly there were quite a number of typos. They weren't major, and didn't take me out of the story, perhaps because I was already so far into the book, but there were there nonetheless.

This is the first, excellent installment of a promising series called "The Wish Granters". The premise is that people who kind of, but don't really die, wind up in Transition. Here, they are paired up and given assignments. One possibility is to become a Wish Granter--self-explanatory!

The woman in her late twenties who is to be granted a wish, and therefore her second chance, is called Shelly. She has a stack of overdue bills in her bottom drawer, and a boyfriend who is never there for her. She tries to beat the lottery, using a probability algorithm that doesn't work. So, if anyone were ever in need of a Wish Granter, it's her. As I read the early chapters of this novella, I was expecting a rather sentimental story in the vein of the Twilight Zone episode "Mr. Bevis". However, this turned out to be smart and funny, and not predictable.
