Describe yourself in three words:
Writer, Teacher, Seeker


Tell us a little about your latest release:
Written for teenage girls, my coming of age/romance novel has a first person narration. THE DEVIL AND DANNA WEBSTER is approximately 50,000 words in length and is told from the viewpoint of Danna, a fifteen-year-old high school student with a talent for art. Danna lives with her mother and step-father, people who are secretive as well as financially challenged. At school she meets senior Kevin Moore, a recent transfer and well-to-do devilish bad boy, who shows an immediate interest in shy Danna. Gar Hansen, football quarterback and top student, is assigned to be Danna’s math tutor and attraction sparks between them as well. But angelic Gar is dating Kevin’s devilish sister Caron. Eventually, Danna has to make some hard choices, not the least of which is whether to sell her soul to the devil in return for receiving everything she ever dreamed of having.


What is your earliest memory?
My earliest memory occurred when I was two years old.
We had just moved into an apartment where my father was varnishing the wood floor. I decided to walk across it, enjoying the stickiness when my dad started to yell. I realized I had upset him and done something wrong and badly.

What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?
Marrying my husband and also giving birth to my two sons. Each event is of equal importance.

What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?
Taking care of my mother when she was dying and being unable to prevent her death.

What have you learned in life so far?
Probably not as much as I wish I had. However, I have learned that is important to follow your dreams even when they seem unlikely so that you will not have to live with regrets.


Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?
Believe it or not, I wouldn’t invite anyone famous. I’d invite my family members, the people I love most.

  1. Great advice about living your dreams and not having regrets!

  2. Thanks for turning the spotlight on THE DEVIL AND DANNA WEBSTER. It's much appreciated. I want to say that this novel is not just for teens. I believe it would be a great read for mothers and daughters to share. The book brings up matters of family values, encourages discussion and dialogue between the generations.
