For as long as I can remember, I've always loved reading and had a book in my hands. I began writing in grade school, crafting dialogue for cartoons drawn by my older brother. I took the first step to fulfilling my dream to be an author when I was in college and a professor encouraged me to submit an article for an academic journal. I've been writing to inspire others since 2000.
Influences: My mother, who fed my reading passion by borrowing money to buy books for me, and my third-grade teacher, "Miz" Wilson. She spanked me in front of the entire class for failing to insert a comma behind the close of a letter. She might have ruined me. I read a book by a well-known author and found the missing period out of 265 pages. Perfectionist tendencies be gone!
Writing Habits: I begin with prayer, asking God to remove the pressure of publishing and to focus on him.
Personal: Mom to one son, who serves in the Navy.
Hair Stories: 40 Widom-Filled Devotionals
For women who wear it, style it, own it and love/hate it. We wear it, style it, own it. It can make us cringe or cry. On our worst days, we have "bad hair days" when everything seems to be going wrong--even if our hair is not to blame. God wants wisdom to be our crowning glory. Hair Stories is filled with wisdom, humor, encouragement and insight. Available on Amazon.
Future Plans: I'm working on another book in the Hair Stories series. The next one, Hair Stories: Behind the Chair, will feature stories by hair stylists and barbers. I am also working to complete the novel I began twenty years ago. Finally, I plan to speak at a number of conferences on hair and identity and changing careers.
