THE BOOKS

 

Welcome to my collection of adventures! Please stop by and take a look. I love to write about overcoming adversity and the power we all have inside to make our dreams come true and become the people we want to be. Waves Crashing is  my first novel and I love every page of this book! I hope you will too. I have also listed three more below that are currently in the works. I am looking forward to sharing them with you.

Password Pocahontas

ISBN-

This book is in the very early stages. In fact, my notes are still on small pieces of paper, not even organized in a notebook yet. It is the true story of an adventure I didn't even realize I was on. My sister recently passed away from Myotonic Dystrophy at the age of 38 and this is our story of growing up, growing apart, and growing closer than ever at the end of her life. Only in the end did our family really understand the significant impact the disease had been having on her life, her abilities and her inabilities. Despite all of the limitations it placed on her, Myotonic Dystrophy never limited her spirit, spunk, or love of life, family and friends. I am so fortunate to have been her sister.

 

Part of the proceeds from this book will be donated to the Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy Association to assist with research so that others living with this disease may find more treatment options and increased hope for a cure.
