Fun facts about me
I give you a few things about me (the Christian, the wife, the mom, the writer) that you would never find in the "About the Author" page in the back of any book.
I have a terrible, terrible sweet tooth. I think I watch more cartoons than my kids. I've now been to Disney World three times. I'm hoping to bring my children next time I visit. Audrey Hepburn is my favorite actress of all time. I wanted to work for a magazine when I was little. I miss East Texas, Magnolia Ube ice cream, and going to school.
I wrote Love, Defined in 2004 to make my roommate feel better after her London trip - yes, that part in the book is real and everything else is fiction. We're all still friends AND Mommies.
I am a Preeclampsia survivor. In 2015, after swearing off that I would never go through another pregnancy, NICU stay, premature baby....God blessed us with a little man. I still ended up with Preeclampsia. I still had to go through another NICU, still had to hold on to a premature baby. This time, I was slammed by a hurricane called, postpartum depression. This is what Storm of Hope: God, Preeclampsia, Depression and me is about. Our story, our tears.
