While in the corporate world, I wrote my first non-fiction book for McGraw-Hill about my vocational expertise--helping others make money. This led to writing other types of non-fiction, but all the while, I was writing fiction in the background. Fourteen books later, it's all clicked in. My books are considered clean but sexy, fast-paced but not overly stressful. Whether it's fiction or non-fiction, I focus on themes of optimism, self-reliance, hope and perseverance. I'm a big believer in happy endings. The rest of my life is captured on Instagram, replete with chickens, a moose here and there and lots of travel which serve as the inspiration for my books.
