I discovered my love of writing while learning about poetry in grade school. I was already an avid reader by that time, but I hadn’t experimented with putting my own words to paper. My desire to be a writer sparked to life and grew into a passion when I was introduced to writing prose a few years later.
I've written in many forms through the years, including editing a local newspaper, copywriting, ghostwriting, and composing a screenplay. Through it all, my dream to be a novelist never dimmed. After working in various jobs, raising my children, and traveling the world, the day finally came when I decided to devote myself to writing full-time. My career was born, and thanks to readers like you, I'm still writing all these years later!
The foundation of my writing philosophy is that stories should transport the reader into a world that leaves them inspired and motivated. We all have superheroes lurking inside, just waiting for the right motivation to surface. I'm a firm believer that stories should put us in the hero's shoes and allow us to experience the story through the hero's eyes.
My debut novel, Arms of Grace, is a finalist in consideration for production by Wind Dancer Films, a silver medalist in the Readers’ Favorite Awards, and a recipient of the B.R.A.G. Medallion.
Along with being a writer, I'm also a wife, a mother to four incredible sons, and Nana to one amazing grand-darling. I love walking, bike rides, and enjoying the outdoors. I suspect I'm part Water-Sprite and even worked as a whitewater rafting guide. I'm left-handed, I can't stand eating beans (like, I hate them), I love dogs, and I'm an avid baseball fan.
(I also write post-apocalyptic Sci-fi under my alter ego, E.A. Chance.)
