We live between two dashes, life and death. Our life’s experiences are dots between those dashes.  In my writing I share lessons about not putting a question mark where God has put a period.

 And Still, I Cry, is about issues some people use as excuses for not succeeding in life such as: racism, sexual molestation, physical abuse, welfare, homelessness, life in an inner city projects, drugs, prostitution, alcoholism, domestic violence, infidelity and heartache. 

Yes You Can, is about how to start and operate a business while pursuing your personal goals. I talk about finding your niche and developing that into a profitable business. I use personal experiences to teach others the “potholes” they should avoid while starting a business.

Eyes of the Beholder, discusses ten women who dealt with difficulties in life and how they used their life’s experiences to form an organization designed to help other women. 

Someday is Now, sends the message to stop procrastinating and live in the “now” of life. It sends the message don’t put off for tomorrow things that can be done today, you may not have a tomorrow. Today is the tomorrow you talked about yesterday. 

Mind Bungee Jumping, contains fifty-four (54) original poems and two-thousand (2,000) motivational quotes. At some point in life, the motivator needs to be motivated. The contents of this book are written to motivate the reader.

Bend in the Road, is about reinventing yourself after the death of a loved one. I share my journey of self-discovery and creating my future after the death of my husband.
