Cool Chic from Cold City - I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and raised by my mom with my three siblings. Growing up in a city that truly experiences the four seasons of the year was a blast. The adventures I had in the snow and below zero weather will never escape my memory.
In the Beginning – As a girl, writing in my diary was something I did to remember important events and accomplishments. When I became a teenager, it was less about the events and became more about my daily activities and emotions. As a woman, writing became therapeutic.
The Next Step – I asked God to reveal my gift and purpose and very clearly He revealed that one of my gifts is being a writer. For so long, my writing was strictly to help me, however, now I am able to use it to help others. I write to encourage, uplift, motivate, entertain and cause the reader to think. I love being a writer!
Heels to Boots – I grew up a girlie girl, yet, after high school, I did an uncommonly girlie thing and joined the United States Army. Taking off my high heels and putting on combat boots was the first big life transition I ever made. While serving, I deployed to the gulf war (Saudi Arabia), and am now a war veteran. That tour of duty is definitely on my list of most memorable moments while serving. Being in the military has not only given me a great respect for those who have and are currently serving, it has given me an extended family.
Fun Facts – I love matchmaking. I enjoy listening to R&B oldies but goodies, and gospel music, with my absolute favorite artists being Prince and Fred Hammond. I love hanging with family and friends. I love watching inspirational movies, television shows and comedy. My favorite snack is hot chips mixed with popcorn, favorite color is blue, favorite scripture is Matthew 6:33 and my favorite animal is my dog, Baby!
Prized Possessions – My mother is who I admire most and my children and husband Jerry are my most prized possessions. They are what I will forever call my answered prayer and dream come true! Being a wife and mother is without a doubt the best thing I have ever done and the best part of my life.
