Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a YA and kids book author from North Ala. I am married with 2 children and 2 dogs. I began writing when in 2nd grade. I won the title of Editor due to my imagination and love for writing. Then after that I graduated high school, and entered a contest for my poem, titled The Cosmetology Student which was published in a Poetry anthology. I was inspired by that publication that I continued to write and later published my first novella titled: Southern Adventures by Tate Publishing; which was mainly about my life growing up in the south.
While furthering my writing career and to gain more life experiences, I work as a Registered Nurse at a local hospital. I hopes to encourage and inspire others to live a healthy, happy life and to treat others with love, compassion and kindness, which is often incorporated into my writing.
