About me

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, I now reside in the Houston, Texas area. I recently earned a Master of Arts Degree in History with a concentration in U.S. History from the University of Houston-Clear Lake where I am currently employed. I have completed my first novel, book one of a series, and am currently editing the second book while my readers critique the first. Will be seeking representation when the first book, Wells Without Water: Frontiers, is polished. My writing has been published in Life is Good! magazine and has been featured on The Southern C website at http://www.thesouthernc.com and in The Southern Coterie newsletter.
