Did you know? 2024 Book Release!

If you have visited my home page or followed me on Social Media lately, you have already seen this news. However, this may be a first for those of you who are strictly blog subscribers.

This is a bit of a change from the information I typically share here, but it is a project I have anticipated for a lifetime! It's no secret that I have devoted my entire professional career to the field of literacy as a teacher and dyslexia advocate. Personally, though, I also have a passion for writing and creating texts of my own.

At the beginning of this year, I released my debut novel, Safely Kept. This is a clean, gripping, romantic suspense novel with a thread of faith woven throughout the storyline. If you live in the South, you will likely relate to the southern backdrop and cultural context. Basically, I have written the type of book I love to read as well!

If you are a fellow reader and want to check it out, Safely Kept is available in paperback and Kindle formats (free to Kindle Unlimited Subscribers!) on Amazon.

You may also notice an updated Author's Page on the Tally Tales site, where I will continue to update and share pertinent information related to my journey as an author. You can also connect with my author profiles on Amazon and Goodreads!

So to my fellow readers out there, I hope you will give this debut book a chance! I would love to hear back from you if you do so! Happy reading, friends!
