Welcome to my website. I'm a writer, lover of animals, reader, teacher, and mischief maker. Perhaps it's the last category that I most want to excel at! On the site you'll find stories about readers/friends and their animals, Jitty advice, contests, book news, newsletters, and photos of the things that matter in my life.
I love to hear from my readers, so feel free to drop a line to my e-mail address, and I will write you back.
If you spawn mischief, I'll join you in it!
My calendar is also on the website, and while my travels are mostly confined to the South, you never know when I might pop up somewhere. So check the calendar to see if I'm going to be in your neck of the woods. I wish I had time to travel, but I also have a small animal rescue (Good Fortune Farm Rescue) and that keeps me close to home.

Reginald Proctor, a self-proclaimed medium, she holds a séance to shed
light on old secrets. But she discovers that some secrets, even those
long dead, still have a startling hold on the living…
