No Dinosaurs Allowed receives 2nd place in Royal Dragonfly 2021


Have you ever dreamed of writing a book and becoming a published author? Do you love to read books? If you said yes to any of these questions then you have come to the right place.

I’m a doctorally prepared nursing professor and a published author of award-winning children’s books, short stories, articles, nursing books, and a self-help book that I wrote with my daughter. I am represented by the fabulous Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary  Agency.  My nursing books have been published by Springer Publishers and my children’s books have been published by Waldorf and Hurn. I have recently signed contracts with Pen It publications and TouchPoint Press.

“May you always have a book to read and a story to hold in your heart” ~ D. D. Hunt

I have always loved books and started my journey as a writer when I was in elementary school. Throughout the years I have learned important things about writing, publishing, and book promotion and I hope to inspire others as I share my books, tips, and experiences as a published author. The three main things that have enabled me to accomplish my goals and realize my dreams are perseverance, persistence, and prayer. The path may be smooth or full of twists and turns but if you believe in yourself and stay the course eventually you will be successful.
