About Me

I was born on the beautiful island of St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands, located east of Puerto Rico. Living in the tropics fueled my imagination and day dreams. For years, I wrote poetry and entered competitions. However, only many years later did I discover joy in writing stories longer than a few pages.

I published my first young adult novel, A Beautiful Girl, in April 2011. This inspirational novel has already touched many hearts ranging from teens to adults. I am in the process of recording this novel in the studio.  Stay tuned for the CD's release. Please go to Published Manuscripts for a link to an excerpt from the book.

I published my second young adult novel, Love's Intensity, on July 11, 2013. This teen romance will thrill the reader with its depiction of teenage passion and unexpected twists. Please go to Published Manuscripts for a link to the publishers web store.

My third release, Billiard Buddies, a New Adult romance has been available to my readers since May 24, 2014.  This story will take the reader through intense game plays and walk you through the Gina's journey of competition and love.  Please go to Published Manuscripts for a purchasing link.

My fourth release, Real Purpose: You Are Special, is one of four poetry books containing poems from my high school and college years. Please go to Bookstores for a purchasing link.

My fifth release, Life Experienced, is the second poetry book. Please go to Bookstores for a purchasing link.

After a two year delay, my sixth and seventh releases emerged as a twin release. Encouraging Through Sharing: A Christian's Perspective and A Love Gift, the third and fourth poetry books from my high school and college years, are now available. Please go to Bookstores for a purchasing link.
