I am a married, grandmother of two. As a recently retired background investigator, I now care for my father and uncle, giving me time to pursue my passion of writing. Writing poetry and lyrics began at an early age; however the past few years I heard the calling to write devotionals. Through that work I hope to spread the message of God's endless love, mercy and compassion. I'm also venturing into fiction with light romance and suspense/thrillers. Variety is the spice of life!
Outside activities include singing in my parish choir, co-leading Rachel's Hope Post-Abortion retreats in San Diego County and serving as a Regional Coordinator for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign.
In my spare time I enjoy blogging, reading, travel and spending time with family and friends. I'm also a football fanatic (NFL and Fantasy) and a diehard Seattle Seahawks fan.
