About the Author


I am one of a “rare breed,” a native Floridian.  I was born here in Orlando, FL and educated in the Orange County Public Schools.  I hold several degrees primarily focused on technical communication, health care, paralegal studies, and business management, administration and information technology.  I am an alumnus of Florida A & M University, the University of Central Florida, Everest University and Rollins College!


I have spent my career, over 20 years, as an administrator in the non-profit sector.  I have been writing for many years beginning with my “stint” as the Assistant Editor of my high school newspaper.  For a few years, I did book reviews for a local newspaper just to get some experience and exposure.  In the last 6 years, I have been a blogger.  This has given me the opportunity to express my feelings and opinions on many of today’s issues of modern life. It also affords me the outlet to talk about my life experiences. 


I have three children.  I do not distinguish or separate them by the mere fact that two of them are not my “biological” offspring.  They are all my children.  I love them all equally.  I am raising my youngest son alone.  This is particularly challenging for us because he was recently diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome or High Functioning Autism.  Through the process of getting his diagnosis, I have determined that I also have Asperger’s Syndrome.


I have written 4 books thus far. My first book is called “Life is a Precious Gift.”  It is available on line everywhere!  You can get it in paperback form and in the e book format. I also have a book series called: "Confessions of a Reformed Cougar."  At some point, I would like to make my books available in audio format for those who have difficulty seeing or reading traditional books.  


I love to write and I feel it would be terribly selfish of me not to share my talent with others.  God has blessed me with this wonderful ability and I am tremendously grateful every day for it!

Confessions of a Reformed Cougar -The Accidental Cougar, Younger Isn't Necessarily Better, The Second Time is the Charm

Janet didn’t set out to be a cougar; it was actually quite accidental.  Somehow though, she is always ending up with younger men.  Of course looking fabulous does nothing to hurt the situation.  Her skin is smooth and wrinkle free.  She certainly doesn’t wear her hair like a 43 year old woman.  And, the unwritten rule among the women in her family is no gray hair!  She certainly doesn’t dress like a woman her age either. 


She has actually lost track of how many times she has heard the phrase: “I thought you were younger…”  It seems to run in the family. 

 None of the women in her family look their age.  It had to be something in their bloodline.

 Janet is the creative type, an artist, with boundless energy so she spends a lot of time in her studio pouring herself into her work.  When she is creating her paintings, nothing else in the world seems to matter.  When she is creating, she isn’t a love-starved, abused housewife.  She is the creator of soul touching works of art. She also spends a great deal of time at art festivals, museums or art galleries. She is a study in contradictions… She exudes class and sophistication but she has a mouth like a drunken sailor or better yet, a marine drill sergeant. 


It’s not that she lacks vocabulary she merely uses the “colorful language” for emphasis.  She is the type of lady that is not afraid to tell you exactly what is on her mind. 


In Volume 2: "Younger Isn't Necessarily Better," Janet decides to explore other dating options with some interesting and entertaining results...  Check them both out, you won't be sorry.


Volume 3: "The Second time is the Charm was released April 11, 2016. In her latest escapades, Janet is tempted to give Sammy another chance but she loves Austin deeply and cannot seem to let him go...


We won't be traveling as much in 2018. I will be doing some local events closer to home though. Follow me on social media to see what I've been up to lately.
