When I am not writing or reading, you may find me rearranging furniture—a disorder inherited from my paternal grandmother.

My current work-in-progress is set in Regency England. I love the simple elegance of this time period.

I invite you to take a look at my blog homepage with entries on various subjects. See the topics on the left.


I am a North Carolina farm girl with a B.S. in Finance and have worked in the financial services industry for too many years.

I enjoy making people laugh and introducing them to the freedom that can be found in a relationship with Jesus.

My first book, Finding Riches(not a regency), can be purchased by clicking the book below:

Half of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to Pregnancy Support Services of Person County.

Oh, and why did I call my blog “Put a Ruffle On It”? I did that in honor of my grandmother, Christine. She never met a pair of shorts or skirt that she didn’t think would be made better by adding a ruffle to the bottom. She tried her hardest to keep her granddaughters in line with her old-fashioned values—values I now write about in my novels.
