I’m a Texan.
I’m a wife, a mom, a grandma, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a niece. I’ve also held many highfalutin jobs, traveled the world and stayed, and eaten in numerous five star facilities. I’ve ridden in limos and flown in private jets. And I’ve made some decent money doing it.
But . . . , all these things, as good as they are, do NOT, and could NOT fulfill me. My life was perfect from the outside but my soul was empty.
I prayed. I wanted more. I hungered and craved for it all. I fell to my knees.
“Lord Jesus sift me. Clean out all the impurities. Humble me.”
Thus began the great adventure and journey of my life. A life of exciting surprises and of brokenness. A life on my knees. A life worth living.
A life of purpose, power and calling.
God’s Purpose. God’s Power, God’s Calling.
Will you join me in this journey?

She has taught and spoken to groups of all ages and sizes.
Her most recent work, the Caller Series, a Young Adult Christian Dystopian Suspense series, challenges readers to find and follow a life of purpose, powered by an eternal God who is calling us to Himself. The series currently includes three books and is available both in print and digitally.
SUPPOSE we lived among corrupt leaders who’d been at work for decades transforming nations in order to make the world a better place; a place made to their personal specifications?
SUPPOSE these leaders targeted teens and young adults to help them accomplish their goals?
Then, SUPPOSE the youth discovered this exploitation and decided to rise up and challenge the world’s leaders? This is the context that begins THE CALLERS Series.
These Christian based books are current to today, suspense filled, and fast paced. They will challenge thinking, and encourage faith in our Creator and his ultimate power over all things. It is my prayer that not just teens and young adults, but readers of all ages will come away changed.
Book 1: The Seventh Caller
Book 2: The Called
Book 3: The Caller
Would make a great movie. Suspense and intrigue wrapped in eternal themes.
Several twists you will not see coming. Great message that is very relevant to the times we live in.
Excellent for a book club. Offers great topics to discuss.
What an original story. Nothing else like it? Very enjoyable read. Has you thinking about what if this were to really happen.
Can’t wait for further books by this author.
The author is a masterful storyteller who wove together a fast-moving novel that kept my attention to the very end.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who would enjoy a story utilizing suspense and high-tech intrigue to point out the challenges many your adults face when trying to discern between ‘good versus evil’ actions and consequences.

Cutting MyselfIt’s 4:36 am. I’m lying in bed feeling confused and overwhelmed. How does talking about me lead others to know God? Shouldn’t I be talking about him? Nobody cares about my mostly uneventful life. He’s the one with the wonderful miraculous stories to tell. Not me. I drag m...

D-I-V-O-R-C-EI sat silent staring up into the face yelling down at me. The tensed muscles surrounding the eyes and mouth forced his words out in a stiff clip. “I can’t take this anymore. . . I can’t live like this. . . I want out. . . I want a divorce.” There it was. My...

In the Eye of the StormI struggled to see through the glaring white lights coming at me from the opposite direction. The thin concrete divider looked fragile between us. Rain swept sideways in heavy globules on to my overburdened windshield. Last year’s wipers could barely keep up with their co...
