Exciting News!

I have learned that my latest book, “Destiny of Determination: Faith & Family” has just been recognized with a lovely honor! The Literary Titan Award recognizes authors for “expertly delivering complex and thought-provoking concepts, vivid scenarios and characters, and original ideas.”

Woo-Hoo!!! I gladly accept! We write because the words and concepts need to get out and leap onto a page. It’s much the same as why we sing… or dance… or act out roles on the stage. But to receive this special recognition is both humbling and rewarding.

Literary Titan also interviewed me. Check the “Interviews with the Author” under the “About the Author” page on this site.

Plus… marvelous reviews have been praising book 2 with even more enthusiasm than book 1, “Destiny of Dreams: Time Is Dear.” One reviewer, Amy Shannon of Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews let me know that I lucked out and “Destiny of Determination: Faith & Family” got picked as her site’s Featured Book of the Month for December! Shweeeeet! It’s a random selection, so I feel very fortunate as she is one highly respected reviewer. Here’s that link:


More exciting is her fantabulous review! PLUS she has “Destiny of Determination: Faith & Family” at #3 in her Top 10 Books of 2022. Can I get a big “Woo-Hoooo” one time? Woooooo-Hoooooooo!
