Mommy’s Big, Red Monster Truck Celebrates First Birthday 🎂

One year ago today, Mommy's Big, Red Monster Truck hit the presses!
What was a little dream, became a huge accomplishment.
Over the past year, there have been many firsts... holding my published children's book in my hands for the first time, attending my first bookstore author events, first library events, visiting elementary schools as an official author for the first time, reading my book to children across North Carolina, and the list goes on.
The opportunity to share my children's travel and adventure picture book has been a priceless gift to me.

Prayers for Grand Bahama Island

It was no wonder after spending so much of my life beach-combing and adventuring through the marsh, surviving one storm after another only to witness the beauty of humanity and communities in the aftermath, I would feel at home in the Bahamas.
Grand Bahamians are strong people. I pray now in the days after such devastation has ripped their lives apart they will continue to witness to the world their strength and faith. I know I was blessed to meet them and visit their home.
I am praying for you all and those gorgeous sugary shores to return to glory.
