I am a writer.

I have always wanted to be a writer of children's books since I was a little girl.  My African American mother had a part in igniting that desire.  

Book Market:  

Through hope in God, I am actively pursuing a career in Christian writing and illustration for my own books because I want to use my talent for the glory of God.  I would love to illustrate picture books for Anabaptists and the Jewish people. Moreover, I would love to have my books in schools.

The main characters in my stories are usually biracial because I am biracial (African American, German, and Czech) and my children are biracial blacks. I feel that biracial characters, and the blending of their black mixed with white families, are typically underrepresented especially in the Christian market.  

On Writing:  

My specialty is in biblical exegesis.  I also enjoy writing poetry, short devotionals, pictures books to early readers.  I have written and published interviews from Christian, teen actresses.  Also, I have written teen devotionals, quizzes, and puzzles.  

When I write, I share the truth in Christ; cut and dry; bold and refreshing; sometimes scary because of the fear of the Lord. When I write for children, I make it fun, but usually it has depth.

A Christian, literary agent once said, "... no one likes reading sermons disguised as stories."  

Tell that one to Jesus.  

I believe in being a light for goodness, godliness, and truth.  Too much darkness exists in the world already, especially in books that encourage sin by calling what is evil, good. 

On Illustration:  

I like mixed media.  I use traditional and digital tools.  Feel free to check out my illustrations.  Also, I like to discover new techniques and styles to work on.

Other Activities:  

By God's grace, I currently work as the founding editor of a magazine for God-fearing women. I have written nearly three-hundred articles based on topics in the Holy Bible.  I am also skilled in website building as well as print and online publishing.

Mission:  

I sought the Lord Jesus and guess what... I found out that He is actually alive and that He is the savior of the world.  I cannot deny this truth so I live my life to tell the world. Through my writings for women and children, I believe in encouraging modesty, godliness, good works, and understanding the importance of the fear of the Lord in one's life.  (I am a born-again Christian, not an Evangelical Conservative.)

I am looking for a Christian agent.  

This Portfolio: 

Please forgive me if this portfolio is not my top priority at times. Since I do not have an agent, other projects take precedence. However, you have options to follow my updates.

All of the works I create are deeply Christian and are made for the glory of the amazing, one and only, true God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
