The Geneva Project – Book 4: This will be the 4th and final book in The Geneva Project series. It will be a bittersweet moment to publish the last book in the series that started it all. I’ve received such an outpouring of love and support for the stories shared in this series. I will be sad to write THE END. But I take comfort in the fact that this story exists and we can revisit the fantastical world of Hullabee Island and all it’s beloved characters anytime we wish. That being said, this last book has been my favorite to write. There is so much action and mystery. I myself can’t wait to see how it ends. Plus, we all know the one rule of fiction – Never say never…

52 Sunrises: This is a very personal project I’ve been working on since my son passed away in 2013. It’s a collection of journal entries I wrote and never planned to share. But through my healing process, so many people have been gracious enough to share their journey of healing with me and each one has brought me comfort. My wish for 52 Sunrises is that in sharing my own journey of coping with loss, I can offer others hope.
