Creativity strikes in many different ways. When I created Jazzy's first photo album, I never thought it would turn into 22 more books, a love of writing, and a life as an author. 

With the help of my supportive husband and family, I have the privilege of living out my passion to write. 

The writing journey isn't an easy one. Manuscripts never seem to be done, even years after you write, "The End." Critique partners and editors demand you slash pages of of hard written words. Failure can be your only friend. 

Becoming an overnight success rarely happens in the publishing world. It takes hard work, patience, resilience, dedication, and courage. 

I am still working on it.
