Welcome to my website! I'm so glad you stopped by.
I'm a pastor's wife, mother of three (and now a mother-in-law as well!), and an author. I love being involved in our church through the Happy Sack Ministry (healthy snacks for local elementary and middle school kids who may go hungry over the weekends) and our Music Ministry. I particularly love singing in the choir as well as being a substitute ringer for our handbell choir.
Now that my husband and I are empty nesters, we get to spend more time together and look forward to visits from our grown children. (We also like to find excuses to go visit them!) I'm blessed to be able to care for extended family members as well as fill my days with writing. I'm so thankful God has allowed me to continue on this writing journey!
I'm excited to share my books with you. You can check them out on the Books page. I appreciate you taking the time to visit and hope you'll come back again!

Back to You: Four New Christian Romance Stories About a Second Chance at True Love (Rejoice Romance)
Join some of today's best-selling Christian Romance authors as they introduce you to four new couples who reunite for a second-chance at romance. This inspirational romance collection from Love Inspired authors Cheryl Wyatt, Missy Tippens, Jessica Keller, and Kristen Ethridge will warm your heart and each quick, satisfying read will keep you in the spirit of Valentine's Day and holiday romance all year long with stories of true love and happily-ever-after.
A bread-twisting bride and her runaway groom are reunited unexpectedly in an inadvertent business move that may not be accidental after all. Charming charter boat captain Carl Anders returns to his childhood home to devote his life to leading beachside adventures for families year round as well as tourists during Cupid Cove’s upcoming Valentine season. He runs into rough waters when he discovers he moved his business into the same nautically themed strip mall containing the bakery of the former best friend-turned-first-love that he jilted at the altar.
Newly-famous pretzel maker Brindle Case tangles with a repeat rejection upon discovering her almost-husband doesn’t regret walking away from their wedding before the ring and vow exchange ten years ago. Can he convince her that silver shores sometimes require souls to sail through hard seasons and trust that God’s will is best lived in God’s time? She must become willing to abandon her bitterness at a different altar in order to walk away with a bigger blessing the second time around. Will she hold on to the hurt of their past, or embrace the second chance to retie their hearts together, this time forever?
Her Valentine Reunion by Missy Tippens
What happens on the very day Abbie Rogers makes a preemptive strike against Valentine’s Day funk by declaring herself content to be single? Why, Victor Wallis, the man who broke her heart, comes crashing back into her life, of course. Not only that, he declares himself a changed man, and he truly seems to be. She even finds herself falling for him again. But when he makes a move to take over her family’s business, Abbie’s not certain she’ll ever be able to trust the only man she’s ever loved.
Their Sweet Reunion by Jessica Keller
Wedding planner Lesley Marks is only three weeks away from the biggest event of her career. If Bridal Features Magazine decides to cover the wedding she’s put together for the senator’s daughter it could translate into years of success for her little company. But the bride-to-be is difficult to please. When vendors begin to back out at the last minute Brom Gilbert—Lesley’s ex-fiancé—comes to the rescue. But working alongside the man Lesley once loved proves harder than she anticipated, especially because the wedding falls on the four year anniversary of when she and Brom were supposed to be married.
Dance with Me, Valentine by Kristen Ethridge
Clair Bell has struggled to put the past behind her since her boyfriend left without a trace years ago. She's built a life around helping others as the director of the Port Provident Retirement Community. As the annual retirement prom approaches on Valentine's Day, Clair is shocked to find that one of her residents has invited a date that she met while playing an online game. But when that date happens to be Rob Landers, Clair's ex-boyfriend who has returned to Port Provident to make amends for his past, Clair knows she can either use this moment to clear all the what-ifs and move forward in her life or be dragged down by the clinical depression which has held her for years. Can two people who have faced life's storms in their own way come back together to dance in the rain once again? Is there hope for forgiveness and a chance at true love once again?

Come Blog with Me...
A group blog, Seekerville, with a group of writer friends. Entering manuscripts in the contest circuit is what brought us together, so we discuss contests and the journey toward publication. When the group formed, one of us was newly contracted. Eventually, all fiftteen of the original bloggers became published! So we have a lot of experience to share. If you're not a writer, please know we also love to welcome readers to our site!
Branching off of the Seekerville website, my good friend and fellow Love Inspired author Ruth Logan Herne and I started the Yankee-Belle Cafe blog. Through the years, we've also added other writer friends from around the country to blog weekly. We hope you'll drop by to share recipes and fun!
