Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My first book, Her Guarded Heart will be released on Christmas Eve, 2017. It is the third book I’ve written, but now the first in the Letting Love In series. The series is about 5 sisters and their relationship with their mother and each other as they grow into independent young women, trying to find their own path.

Her Guarded Heart is the story of a young woman who wants nothing more than to be independent. She want’s to escape her mother’s expectations and from the growing fear that without a career she can rely on, she will end up dependent on a man to provide for her, leaving her in a position to choose the wrong man, like her mother continued to do.
