FAPA Awards

The Florida Authors and Publishers 2017 Presidential Awards will be held on August 5th, and I’m trying to wait patiently!  To be named a finalist on my debut novel is such an honor, and I can’t wait to share the results with you!

Happy Reading……….


Lottie is a Finalist!!

Yesterday I received notice that Lottie Loser is a finalist in the Florida Authors and Publishers Association Presidential Awards! This is like a dream come true, and I don’t want to wake-up!!

The actual awards will be presented in August, so stay tuned for the results!!

Also yesterday, I attended a book club in Celina, Ohio as the guests of my good friends, Bev Badgett and Sonnie Bernhardi.  It was a great group of ladies and I truly enjoyed meeting them, and telling my story.  As a side note, it was Bev who told me the name of the book should be Lottie Loser after I shared with her that was the nickname Lottie was given by a mean girl when she was in Junior High. Honestly I wasn’t sure, but once I had the idea in my head I liked it more and more!

Wishing that all of your Fairytales will have a happy ending!
