Welcome, Avid Readers!

Thank you for stopping by and showing your support! I have been a writer ever since a pencil first touched my little pre-school fingers, and boy has it been a wonderful adventure since then. I've dabbled in different genres, from poetry and blogs to memoirs and full length empowered romance novels. I've previously made a career out of business writing, so you can say the written word is just simply part of my soul. It is my wish to take readers on an inspirational journey; one that will empower them to live with hope and courage.

"To ask how I feel about writing is to ask how I feel about breathing." - Shakirah Bourne, Writer

Dear Bumbling Boy 


What started out as a joke (“This is entertaining; you should write a book about your dates gone wrong”) turned into a reality the moment I took a class on character development and realized that my bumbled and blundered online dating experiences were merely research opportunities for future book characters.

From scammers and sexual predators to Mr. Nice Guys and heart stealers, I’ve gathered enough material to inspire all kinds of literary personalities—while laughing and learning about men and myself along the way. A tongue-in-cheek exposé about my online dating mishaps awaits.

Four-Leaf Clover

This book is my first in my newest children's book series, The Irish Fairy Adventures.


Meri-Rose is a curious little fairy who loves adventure. In a lush meadow, she finds a rare four-leaf clover and makes a wish. When her wish doesn’t come true, Meri-Rose wonders if the clover’s magic is broken. Will she figure out a way to fix it and restore the magic of wishing?
