After sixteen years practicing law in California, having started my career as a judicial research attorney, followed by prosecuting criminal cases and later to defense work, to estate planning and probate law, in 2010 my husband and I moved to Florida where I'm enjoying the writing life.
Of utmost desire was to write No Kiss Goodbye, the story of an extraordinary journey when I was fourteen years old that taught me to love God with all of my heart, treasure my freedom above everything else, and never look back.
Through all life's setbacks, I think of Winston Churchill's words: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
I'd like to share this quote for life's struggles: "God never gives strength for tomorrow, or for the next hour, but only for the strain of the minute. The temptation is to face difficulties from a commonsense standpoint. The saint is hilarious when he is crushed with difficulties because [victory] is so ludicrously impossible to anyone but God." (Oswald Chambers)
