At the ACFW Awards banquet with Robin Jones Gunn

Jessica Dotta, Gina Holmes and I

started out together in this crazy business. 

I had the honor of directing these ladies in "Savannah Sipping Society" 

Another hit for PGSH

When my muse won't come out to play, I go where I know I'll find creativity: to Sugar Hill Bakery & Cafe, owned and operated by my friend Nancy Wren. You can see by the decor, how creative she is. And my muse loves to play there.

From "Guess Who Came To Dinner" an original play by moi, I had the hilarious fun of directing the Hubs, who is the world's best at ad libbing, much to the audience's delight and his leading lady's consternation.

The cast of "Out of This World" a 1930s & 40s radio show, which featured Ray Bradbury's "Mars is Heaven" and H.G. Well's "War of the Worlds."

Due to popular demand, these radio plays have become an annual tradition for PGSH.

Elizabeth Ludwig and Michelle Griep

are my faithful and wonderful critique partners.

This award means more to me than any I've received. It's the first Volunteer Service Award ever given by ACFW. This was 2013, and I'm holding it in the photo (above left) with Robin Jones Gunn.

I love to speak top book clubs! If you'd like me to come to yours, use the contact tab.

Players Guild@Sugar Hill's production of

"12 Angry Jurors" played to packed houses and rave reviews. 

‚ÄčLong, long ago there were three friends who wanted to to be paperback writers. Now they are.

and Ane of Mean Gables. 

This was near then end of my exhausting but exhilarating debut book launch party. With me are Nora St.Laurent from The Book Club Network, and my dear hubs, who is the artist who has painted 5 of my book covers. That's about to end as I begin a new series, but it's been fun having my first series be a family affair. Our Chef son catered the party and it was huge success, as we had over 200 attendees.
