Water Skippers, was my very first novel. I laughed, and cried writing this story about Kyle and Eden. The telling of any story is a magical adventure, that is made up, in the mind of any author.
I am an avid reader, and I personaly believe there are dragons, vampires, and multicolored kitty cats in this world, because just how boring would life be if they weren’t.
In the real world, I’m the mother of two, a wife,a daughter, and a mamaw… I also talk Appalachian, and I write Appalachian. So my books are not the norm….
I hope you enjoyed my world, and will continue to play with me on the next Water Skipper adventure.
These books should be read in order.

Petal (Water Skippers Book 5)
I believed she was nothing more than a fairytale. It was a story told to me as a small boy by my beloved Nana, that is, until the day I found her among the petals. That moment in time turned my whole world upside down. Now that I have her, I want more.
He was a faraway dream; a mystery of the unknown just out of my reach, until a Whisp of Fate literally dropped me right in the palm of his hands. Now I want more, I want his love.
Will he be able to love me in the precious moments that remain, or will my spirit leave this world forever, cursed for eternity to live in his shadow?
I’m Appalachian, and I talk Appalachian. Therefore, I write Appalachian. All of my books are country girl correct. This is a clean romance, that reflects what true love is all about.
Petal can be read as a standalone book… all of my books have their own HEA. There is no cliffhanger in this book, just a glimpse of what’s to come.
