Novelist and Children's Author

Thrilled to Announce

As an author I enjoy writing in multiple genres, including novels for women and books for middle grade girls. Seeing that my last published book was a novel, I think it’s time for some middle grade fiction, don’t you?

Time to celebrate!

Time to celebrate!

I’m thrilled to announce I signed a contract for Love, Lexi: Life in the Middle with Tyndale House Publishers to release in 2016. Here’s a short blurb…

ALEXIS DAWN COOPER (aka Lexi) hates the way she looks, wants to hang out in the quad with the popular kids, and wishes Justin Powell, the boy she’s had a crush on since first grade, would like her as more than a friend. The sight of blood and spiders are among Lexi’s biggest fears and being the invisible middle child is no fun either! But her biggest problem is the PD (principal’s daughter), one naturally beautiful girl named BIANCA TAYLOR who has chosen Lexi as her target this year. Through journal entries Lexi will discover what it means to seek God first above everything else.

I wish you could see me doing the happy dance! This book is close to my heart because I’m a middle child and have experienced some of the things I’m putting Lexi through.

Want to know a secret? I pray each day before I write. I need God to help me put the words on the page. Will you pray for me too?

Thank you, my wonderful readers! I can’t wait to share this book with you.
