​​​​What began as a spiritual answer to a grandmother's prayers, has revolved into a lifetime of blessings.   Nonnie, What's God?  has taken me on an incredible journey.

Once my book was published I chose to enter it in an awards contest through

The Jenkins Group and Independent Publishers book awards.  From 36 categories I selected the Christian Children's books category.  I know this was one of the best choices I have ever made.  Winning this award is a blessing that has provided me with many opportunities to share, as well as receive numerous phenomenal heartfelt testimonies that may never have been shared by Parents and Grandparents.          


proudly wearing many titles such as Wife, being happily married to my best friend, Glen since 1971.   Mother, of three wonderful children who are grown and started families of there own.  They have blessed me with another title of Grandmother, or in my case "Nonnie!"  Becoming a grandparent has brought such joy to my life.  My grandchildren truly inspire my desire to write Children's Books.

I have recently retired from working  as a Teaching Assistant for  TBAISD for over twenty six years.  Through those years I was able to help young adults with learning life skills and assisted them with transitioning safely into our community.  My goal for retirement is to publish my second children's book.

I have also enjoyed the Art of Clowning, both professionally and inspirationally for all ages. As Daffie the clown I have engaged with others through laughter and tears. One of my greatest joys was  a clown ministry, I assisted in write a few inspiring skits that I was blessed to shared with fellow clowns through this Ministry know as The Cheerful Witness.

The titles of Publisher and Author of Christian Children's Books, certainly was not part of my personal plan.  I feel truly blessed for this gift and continue to give God the praise and glory for the ability to inspire others through my writing of a religious book for children. 

I can't explain how it warms my heart when a child makes a connection with my books.   My personal goal is to help children realize God is available for the asking and that they never have to feel alone. 

I'm truly inspired by events that occured with my  grandchildren and as most grandparents might agree, the best stories happen when you least expect them.


My personal mission is to be open to hearing Gods word and I am praying he will continue to allow me to share this gift of teaching through a Christian Children's book ministry. 

My dream is to supply the tools for Parents and Grandparents that may help in planting the seeds of faith. 

Presently I am working on a second book, which will also allow Nonnie to share another story inspired by her grandchildren.
