You could say I'm a late bloomer
For an author, that is.
Writing has always been a hobby for me, but it wasn’t until the pandemic of 2020-2021 that I turned that hobby into a passion. My debut novel, Two Lives, One Heart is available now from Desert Palm Press and Bella Books. My second novel is called When It's True and was released on May 1, 2023.
I focus my work on the authentic representation of the LGBTQ community. I draw from some life experiences, but more often than not, observations from the family, friends and community around me.
