Supporting Ukraine

I am deeply committed to helping those negatively affected by the war in Ukraine. As such, I have decided to take part in a book fair to raise funds for this purpose: The Stand For Ukraine Book Fair. All you have to do to help is shop the fair here and your money will go directly from the authors to the charity Save The Children. To read more about Save The Children's efforts in Ukraine, visit their website.


The book fair is running from now until April 30th, and features over 130 romance and women's fiction titles! Please take a minute to check it out and maybe buy a few things in support of our displaced Ukrainian friends. Every dollar helps feed and support Ukrainian families!

"Fly Catching" finally released!

The cover of "Fly Catching", released July 2021.

The long awaited (at least, on my end!) collection of short fiction, memoir, and personal essay has been released! This book is a collection of work spanning many years, and it has finally been edited and is ready to be read. The book shares insights on my childhood as I grew up in Galveston County, and my experiences becoming a wife, mother, and later, lawyer and judge. You can find the book in ebook form or as a paperback on Amazon, here.
