With the release of THE BEANTOWN GIRLS in 2019, she continued to fulfill her dream of writing lesser known stories of women in history.
Keep a look out for her upcoming novel THE SECRET STEALERS, which is based on the true stories of the women of the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA, during World War II. It will be released in April 2021.
