While the Texas Panhandle lacks trees and mountains and lakes, we are blessed with great skyscape.

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."

Nurse practitioner, author, photographer



I've completed my masters degree program and my advance practice registered nurse license, and as promises, I have once again begun to write book SEVEN of the Like Souls series.  Book Six, Signal of Guilt, will be released June 10, 2021.  I am working on the next, which I haven't titled yet.  


For those of you who have just found my page, I am the author of a suspense series, Blood of Like Souls, Tears of Like Souls, Promises of Like Souls, and Secrets of Like Souls and Echoes of Like Souls.  These are available in paperback at Amazon or as Kindle or Nook e-books.  The first four are also available on Audible.


If you'd like a little blurb of my writing, samples are available on Amazon, but I'll tell you more on the next pages...
