Hello Friends,

My new novel, Under the Tropical Skies (November 15, 2022), the fourth novel in the Kate Grace series, is available on Amazon and other stores.

In this next book, on a quest to learn more about her maternal ancestral line and the secrets that her 4th-great-grandmother’s diary reveals, propels Kate, grieving the loss of her unborn child, on a healing journey providing insight, understanding, and emphasizing the power of love, family, and forgiveness. The novel is set in the present day on the idyllic shores of Kauai and on the inspiring slopes of 19th-century Taormina, a picturesque town perched high above the crystal waters of the Ionian Sea off the coast of Sicily where the bonds of love and family reach beyond the generations.

Welcome to my author website and Simply Delicious Living Magazine. As a novelist, cookbook author, recipe developer, print lifestyle journalist, TV Host, and television and film writer/producer, I have a passion for writing and creating content for books, magazines, newspapers, television, film, video, and radio that inspires, uplifts, entertains and informs.

I first developed a love of storytelling when I was a child, thanks to my English teachers in middle school. I wrote stories from historical fiction to modern-day romances, mysteries, even futuristic tales. And then I forgot about my writings…until much later. Read More.
