About Me

I am a Christian and an active member of my church in Illinois where I reside with my husband. I'm also the Director of the Christian Community Compassion Center Food Pantry in Harrisburg.

I am also a formerly published writer, who still wishes to write, even though my muse is deceased. My muse was not a person or an entity of any kind; rather it was my state of being, which at the time was living on my own without somebody to love.

Now that I am very happily married to the most wonderful husband in the world, I find I am so busy with my very fulfilled life that I don't write much any more. But I do want to write a book about my favourite cat, Oscar, whom I lost with my home back in 2013.

My husband says I should write the story with a different outcome, a happier one, and in that way, Oscar might live forever, in a sense.

No worries ... I haven't given up yet!

Until I have more to publish on here, I will just have to read and give reviews for others. (I hope you all don't mind.) ;)

Just so you all know ...

I'm not online a lot, as I have a very busy life with many responsibilities. If I don't respond as quickly as you would expect, my apologies. Rest assured I will respond as soon as I am able.

In 2013, I lost everything, including a home, prized possessions, my career, and my beloved cats. I was homeless for a time, living in homeless shelters in Southern Illinois, all the while, God promising me that He would restore me.

Now, four years later, I have a home, a wonderful husband whom I love and who loves me in return. The possessions I have now are nearly as much as I had before, and some are even better! It has not been my doing; none of it would be without the love of my Lord, Who had mercy on me when I was yet hostile toward Him.
I am living proof that the Lord gives and He takes away, and He also is able to restore you beyond anything you can possibly imagine! Praise be to His Name!
I am soon to begin writing a book about my cat, Oscar... stay tuned for some of this work.
