#1 International Best-Selling Author
Welcome to the home my never ending thoughts. I launched my new Author's Site in early 2012 as I embarked on life as a full-time writer. I have always loved to write but finally decided to share my words with the world. Little did I know where the next year would take me.
In 2011 I published my first book, It's Simply...Sausalito: An Inspirational Journey. This book is very special to me because it allowed me to combine my passions for writing & photography. I was going through a lot of transformation at the time, and the words I wrote and photos I captured embodied the many lessons I learned along the journey. In early 2012 I published It's Simply...GOLDEN: 75 Years of Inspiration as a tribute to the Golden Gate Bridge and those it has inspired over the last 75 years.
Since attending the 2012 San Francisco Writers Conference in February, and IBPA Publishing University in March, my career as a writer has really taken off. I have connected with amazing individuals in the publishing industry and learning from the best. I have been eager to take what I have learned and put it into action. In April, 2012 I landed my first radio interview, first book talk, and first book signing. It was as if I had opened the flood gates of creativity because I was finally on my true path.
I released my third book in July - It's Simply...SF: Our City By The Bay, highlighting the city of San Francisco, CA from a local's point of view. In November, I released my fourth book - It's Simply...SAILING: Our Voyage to the 2013 America's Cup, a book that is so special to me as it allowed me to combine my passions & talents while serving others. This book features youth sailing and the voyage of a young sailor as they aim to become one of the sport's elite athletes.
As 2012 came to an end, I was truly living my dream as a full-time 'artist' - a transformational author of now four books and an award winning photographer with pieces exhibited in galleries across America. I felt truly blessed.
2013 started off with a bang. I released my first calendar - an 18-month Sailing Calendar titled It's Simply SAILING: Our Voyage Inspiring Youth in April, just in time for sailing season in the Bay. I have partnered with Oracle Racing Team USA so that a portion of the proceeds from my calendar will go to benefit youth sailing around the Bay. It's an exciting time in San Francisco as the city hosts the 34th America's Cup.
In September, 2013 I released the first book in my Personal Development/Memoir Series, It's Simply Serendipity: Four Steps to Manifesting a Life of Bliss. This is the book where I share my personal story of transformation, my journey from homelessness to published author. I began 2014 in a new city - Los Angeles and published my 6th book, It's Simply Publishing. I was thrilled when it, along with It's Simply Serendipity became a #1 International Bestseller on Amazon. 2014 was a HUGE year for me as four of my six books hit the bestseller list, and I felt finally recognized as an establish author.
At the end of 2015 I released my 7th book, PEARL, the sequel to It's Simply Serendipity. I'm so proud of this book and what it has become. I also feel grateful to my beautful home in Santa Monica that became the perfect sanctuary to birth this book. After an extensive four month book tour with PEARL, I took a much needed break and decided to change directions with my writing so that I can continue to grow as a writer/author.
My 8th book TIMING THE TIDES will debut in April, 2017 and is my first piece of historical fiction. This book is the first in a three-book series in this genre, and I'm excited to see what develops.
Thank you for visiting my site and I welcome you to join me on yet another new chapter in my life.
