Born and raised in Maryland, which remains dear to me, you will find many of my backdrops reminiscent of childhood times past. My current work in progress deals with coming of age – both chronologically and spiritually. My focus over the last year has been on putting self first, getting down to business with my writing, and continuing my mentoring.
In addition to my love for writing, I have a love for travel. I have visited St. Lucia, Aruba, Curacao, St. Martin, Mexico, and a few other islands. My entrepreneur passions involve a travel business and real estate investment. If you love to travel, visit my travel site – www.luxurious-s-kapes.com – for great vacation locations and deals.
