Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by. After writing essays and devotionals for a decade, I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and I’ve landed here–in the middle of writing my first novel! Haven Bay is a fictitious community based on the little town of Carrabelle, Florida. I was born there and the roots of my family tree are solidly planted in the oyster beds and pine forests lining the Gulf coast of the Panhandle. Haven Bay will highlight all the best parts of the Forgotten Coast and leave you planning a visit. The quirky cast of characters will embody all the incredible local personalities and they will quickly feel like friends. Stories that are just too wild to be made up will be sprinkled like confetti throughout the plot, celebrating this unique community. I hope you’ll join me in this journey. I’ll be highlighting some behind-the-scenes adventures into research and stories and recipes discovered along the way.
If you’re interested in my nonfiction writing, you can still find those posts here on the website. Stay tuned for more details!
