In 2012, MORE Magazine published an article that I wrote on their website. It was my personal experience with my choice to go grey at the age of 42 and quickly passed through the hands of women all over the world.
Shortly after, I wrote a weekly blog for the better part of three years called I Dare Say. It was a collection of articles and thoughts intended to empower and inspire women and girls.
I published a fictional story in 2015 that had been churning in my head for quite sometime. While lovely and simple in ways, Larkspur Bungalow also delves deeper into the same themes that I wrote about in my blog.
In 2017 I adapted Larkspur Bungalow into a screenplay with a professor from Illinois State University. We were thrilled to receive a heap of awards and recognition in many national and international film festivals in 2018.

The goal for 2019 is development so stay tuned on the progress of my beloved Larkspur Bungalow.
Many of my readers have asked when I plan to write book #2. Well…I have been working on my next writing project for the last six months.. I have completed my initial outline and plan to begin writing very soon. While the title may ultimately change, for now is will be titled To Basil, With Love…
In 2015 I published Larkspur Bungalow! The fictional romantic thriller weaves a complex series of events from the Pacific Northwest to the magical Bay Area.
As a prior resident of Portland, Oregon and Marin County, I included my favorite local haunts with a fictional story of love and loss. Layered with the fear of international terror on American soil, our beloved main character navigates her way with the grace and drive that will inspire the reader to applaud her journey while falling in love with her strength of character.
