A Daydreamer

To the next chapter in life:

To discovering where the latest adventure will take place. To finding the perfect little place for writing your next novel. To seeing a beautiful view in front of you. To hearing nothing but the water ruffling ashore as the sun gleams down. To knowing that there is nothing more calming than lying nearby. To daydreaming all afternoon long as a new storyline comes to life. To hiding beneath the trees just to have a moment alone. To following the roads to the secluded cove where everything is quieter, prettier, and designed for those who want to leave behind the chaos. To never wanting to leave the simplicity behind. And to want nothing more… That’s the dream.

New Novel


Contemporary Romance/Young Adult

Now Available in paperback and digital editions! Couldn’t have predicted how real this story has turned out to be. Originally writing it over seven years ago, all I saw was the glamour and fantasy and couldn’t have predicted the future headlines. Despite the events that have come to light, this is still one of my favorites. So, thank you for taking an interest in my book that was inspired by relationships, love, and the many hardships that couples face while walking along the path of life. As I venture toward different directions and learn from past mistakes, my ideas have broadened to include a little mystery and drama. A Moment in Time is one of my personal favorites, for it is my first stand-alone novel, and it represents young love, one of the more trying times in a persons’ life. A combination of light and dark flows throughout as there are sweet moments, but tenderness as well. This novel felt easier to write since it wasn’t attached to a series or inspired by places that have impacted my own direction. I chose to start from scratch and provide settings and backgrounds that don’t exist anywhere on a map, and I wanted to explore two different worlds as they come together to create a passionate outcome. As a child who spent many years dancing, ice skating, and flipping around the family farm, I- like so many others- have always been entranced by the world of elite sports and the young women who shine under the spotlight. But like many industries, there is always an unpleasant side that is rarely seen. When I first drafted this story years ago, I couldn’t have predicted today’s events that now overshadow the glitz and glamour. I was more interested in bringing forth a love story about an average boy who falls for a girl that lives in a very different kind of world. As an author, writing has become a part of my daily routine, and perhaps, the most relaxing part of my day. Piecing together ideas and storylines allows me to progressively move forward while learning so many new things. Though hard, and very discouraging at times, I welcome the challenges ahead and am excited to share future work. I appreciate the recognition and support that everyone has offered me.






Below the Surface

At first glance, an introvert’s way of life may resemble the tip of an iceberg- not much going on there. But some may realize that it’s just the icing on the cake, or, in this case, the ruffling sea. All of those thoughts, all of those daydreams, and all of those achievements are privately hidden just below the surface as a way of shielding their true identity. What you see, isn’t what you always get. And sometimes, there are so many ideas floating around that shattering the glacier of thoughts is what it takes to move on…until the next block of thoughts form. And then, a new story will come along, offering a sea of inspiration.

Oceanview Room


When everything just feels too difficult and nothing seems to be coming together… When you simply want a prettier view and will drive three hours to get there… When a weekend away with someone special is your favorite time of day… When the sand softens your skin and the waves are endless… When the ocean view room offers the most beautiful view, dreams will come true.
