Many of the life circumstances of her works are inspired by challenges, situations and tragedies that have occurred in her life. The mission of her writing is to illuminate the journey of how God brought her through, when the pieces of her life began to fall apart and unravel. She is passionate about writing and understands that her mandate from God is to reach the nations with her gift of imagination and knowledge of the Word of God. To minister to the hurt, confused and lost through romance and sound & drama. Her works are intertwined with each other and have two things in common--the great state of Georgia and football. Georgia is the base location for every book, with the characters being either from there or the story or significant event in the book, takes place there.
She understands that her responsibility to God is to spread His word by any means necessary. It is her determination to do just that--through the power of fiction, romance and sound & drama. She was born to write for such a time as this! She lives and breathes her brand that, “Ministry is always…..REQUIRED!”
