I have one book published as well as numerous articles, essays, and a short story published on line and in print.

I write fiction with lesbian characters (aka lesbian fiction). My first book is a Romance. I am currently writing a Fantasy, two Romances, and a Science-Fiction.

You can see the list here:

My goal is to get this Fantasy to the publisher by the end of March. Yeah. Right. I'm gonna do it. I am. Really.

Here's a poem I wrote only a week ago:

It's Not Just Me

copyright 2009

The doctor says:
"A chronic disease
Injections and medicines
You'll be just fine,
don't worry."

Trying to be strong,
but I can see through
My daddy's draining his life
in front of me

My brother tenses up still
The anger shows in his face
as he chases the monster
that he can't see

My sister's eyes crease
with worry and determination;
Hope fills her to help find
a solution for my body

My mom's guilt drags her;
In words I can't explain
why she feels the burden
of my eternity

My fiance's embrace
tightens with pain
when I tell him I don't understand
or am afraid and weary

I'm killing everyone around
including myself
My body is aching
and betraying me

The doctor says:
"A chronic disease
Injections and medicines
You'll be just fine,
don't worry."

Hi All-

I've been looking for a group like this.
I've published three books (one about the effects of T1D on a relationship) and have an article published April 2009 in Diabetes Health magazine (online edition, until it goes to print next month) I also have multiple poems published in many poetry collections.

Please feel free to check me out at or my T1D site:

I can't wait to see more works from this group!
