Hi there! I’m the author of two novels, “The Young Wives Club” and “Louisiana Lucky.” I also write lifestyle content (food, style, relationships, etc.) for various national publications. I’ve been writing professionally since I was just a nerdy teenage girl with a big dream and feel so thankful every day I get to call this my job. Stay tuned to this website for book news, writing tips and more!

My latest novel: “Louisiana Lucky”

About the book: From the critically acclaimed author of The Young Wives Club, a “heartwarming story about friendship, heartache, and self-discovery” (Karen White, New York Times bestselling author), comes a charming novel reminiscent of the works of Mary Alice Monroe and Kristy Woodson Harvey, about three sisters who win a huge lottery prize and learn what it truly means to be lucky.
