welcome

That's me!

Hey there!

I’m so glad you stopped by to check out my new site!

I know what it’s like to grow up on the edges of beautiful towns filled with beautiful homes and beautiful people, but that hasn’t stopped me from writing about what it’s like to be the one on the outside looking into those circles.

Life can be bumpy for a kid who’s struggling to fit in and find the way, but staying true to yourself and what you believe in is the best reward. Meeting your soul mate, best friend, and future husband in seventh grade is pretty great, too. After a happy high school courtship, I married my senior prom date, Ed. We live with our sons, Mike and Nick, and a pack of rowdy shih tzus in Atlanta.

The writing bug bit me early. To survive the daily traumas of middle and high school, I started writing novellas for friends and submitting spooky stories and romantic tales to magazines at the ripe old age of 13. Literary magazines, yearbooks, college newspapers, freelance writing assignments, a hearty imagination, and fierce determination led me to write countless magazine articles and books about lifestyle passions – home, entertaining, cooking, interior design and family life.

If I’m not tapping away at my keyboard reliving the angst and joy of my teen years, I am usually behind the camera or at the stove. I am an award-winning chef who racked up medals and the grand prize in an international competition. But if you ask my husband, the most memorable meal I ever made was the fettuccine Alfredo and Tater Tots he convinced me to make on one of our first dates. And as we dug our spoons into the carton of mint chocolate chip that night, we promptly fell in love.
