Each of us have events in our lives that shape who we are. Love & tragedy, peace & chaos, faith & doubt — all are moments that write on the pages of our lives. My story is not much different from the next person’s and it is something I am willing the share.
Through fiction, I hope to peel back the mask of our lives and show readers what faith looks like in action, what romance is not, and bare the pieces of my heart on the pages of my books.
I hope you will join me on the journey.
Something new is coming!

“Taste and see that the Lord is good.”
And so is Beth’s cooking! It’s a good thing, too. After a lifetime of her family’s smothering embrace, a whole new world opens to her with the passing of her beloved grandmother.
Armed with an inheritance she never expected and orders on how to use it, Beth sets off for Merriweather Island and fulfillment of a lifetime of dreams.
Or so she hopes.
What she didn’t hope for was what most women would—a man who fills her thoughts at the most wonderfully unwelcome times. She doesn’t have time or space for a relationship, but how do you tell love to just go away?
Of course, starting over in a new place is never easy, especially as an outsider in a small community. Add to that a mayor who has her dander up and a woman bound to make her life miserable, is it any wonder that Beth begins to doubt God’s and Gram’s plans?
With her heart betraying her resolve and challenges to her faith, Beth finds it takes bravery she didn’t know she had to discover just how scrumptious independence can be.
This “Merriweather book” is the second in a new series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
The Independence Island Series: beach reads aren’t just for summer anymore.
I am a mom and reading is my escape. (Television is not entertaining or refreshing for me.) I love bragging about stories I have come across to my friends and that is why I started Back Porch Reads. Please head over there and check out some of the reviews.
