The partnerships a writer forms in their community reveal their true character. I cherish my relationships with First Baptist of Chattanooga, Baptist Today, and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship because they allow me to be authentic in my spiritual journey amid a climate of honesty and humility. My life-long passion for history, along with my deeply held social justice and faith-based views, help fuel my zest for writing. There is nothing quite like fleshing out a story, and I enjoy doing so for middle-grade to adult audiences alike. I delve into the personalities of my historical fiction characters as they examine their motivations, hopes, and fears under a variety of circumstances. Writing is inspiring, demanding, frustrating, and disappointing, but never boring.
