Whether you're surfing to learn more about me, pick up some
writer tips, or just browse, I thank you for doing so.
I love the Internet, which has proven a key to
my freelance success. Indeed, the Internet proved instrumental in my
ability to secure two book deals.
I am the author of "A Student's
Guide to Toni Morrison," and
"I Want to Talk
With My Teen About
Money Management." I also contributed a chapter on money and
finances to "Our Voices: Issues Facing Black Women in America," which
released in October 2009.

and Speakers Association, Association of
Writers & Writing Programs,
Evangelical Press Association, and
Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators,
I am actively pursuing additional opportunities to write nonfiction books
and other material for children.

publisher/editor and nonfiction writer. My

a "Best Web
Site for Writers"
for 2004. Only 101 sites are chosen for this prestigious
award/designation. SPIRIT-LED WRITER
also received the honor in 2003.
On the speaking front, I
at conferences, retreats, schools and other events.
Editors, Project Managers and Book Packagers: Yes, I'm available for book and/or article
assignments. My success writing
for multiple markets -- general and religious; U.S. and international;
youth, women, parenting, ministerial, and professional -- proves that
I can effectively handle a cross-section of assignments.
