It's All About
From a very young age, I studied people and their habits; everything from how people dressed to how they spoke and interacted with others. For some reason, this fascinated me and it kind of stuck. Through the years, I’ve been told I have an eye for detail.
I used that skill, and at 21, as a licensed beautician, aesthetician, and electrologist, I bought a building and operated a full-service beauty salon. The years were good. I loved the art of beautifying others, and I was blessed in my personal life by marrying a wonderful man. Then I broke my leg, and life took on a new direction.
I went to university, and several years later gave birth to a beautiful baby girl; two years after that, a sweet baby boy. Since I wanted to be home with my children, I turned in my scissors and delighted in being a mother. I remembered my university English professor strongly urging me to keep writing, so when time allowed, I wrote and discovered I loved creating stories. I eventually found something I was passionate about writing ~ a comedy mystery about a beautician who uses her tools of the trade to catch criminals. This led to the birth of Valentine Beaumont and the Murder, Curlers series!
Two years after self-publishing, I became a USA Today Bestselling Author, a #1 National Bestseller on Amazon, and ranked in the top 10 on the IndieReader bestseller list. I have also won and placed in over 30 contests throughout my writing career and enjoy attending book signings and conferences where I meet readers and network with other authors.
