Welcome to my website!

I’m glad you found me. lily-of-the-valley-istock1

I’m a YA (that means young adult, ages 12 and up) writer and flower-lover.  My first novel, Forget-Her-Nots, will be on bookshelves in February of 2010 — just in time for spring.

I can’t imagine there is a single person in the entire world who wouldn’t be happy to receive a flower.  In almost all cultures  and throughout all times, flowers  represent what is beautiful and ephemeral.  Flowers are lovely, because they want to catch our (and insects’) attention.  That’s how they create seeds or spread seeds to ensure their species blooms for another season.

So what’s my book got to do with this?  It’s about the magic of flower giving and receiving — how flowers can awaken our emotions and help us to hope again.

Come along with my main character, Laurel, and me to discover how the magic of flowers can transform you!
