My Books


My first poetry book, New Day, New Dreams,
takes the reader on a romantic ride of happiness,
heartbreak, and passion, along with exploring struggles in life,
while being inspired to move forward.
Adding humor and laughter to the mix
is a delightful reprieve from heartbreak and hurt.
This collection of poetry is a beautiful reminder
of long lasting love, new beginnings,
and showing appreciation for the special people in our lives.

Finding a Balance, my second collection of poetry is a compilation that speaks often of my emotions and spirit after finding out about my daughter’s illness three years ago. But in contrast to this sadness, I possess a romantic soul and am blessed to have celebrated close to twenty-seven wonderful years of marriage to my husband and best friend. So from darkness to light, through faith and romance, I find strength to move forward. This book takes the reader on a ride of different emotions evoked from life and love.


My third book: More than Coffee, Published September 1, 2021

From the early woes of childhood and teen years, this collection of stories and poems paints a picture of young dreams and fears. But as adulthood sets in, these dreams and fears change. More than Coffee touches on love and loss, nature and endurance, marriage and parenting. In these memories, humor diffuses fear and taking risks proves to be a powerful method in boosting self-confidence. Through it all, whether in the wilderness near a sparkling lake or in the comfort of home, there’s nothing like a good cup of coffee. A poignant and reflective collection of verse and prose that is best enjoyed sipping your favorite coffee roast.
