I love history, especially Florida history. What started as a marketing idea to promote my beaded clay and medallion style jewelry, became a desire to learn more about the history of the Timucuan Indians, some of the first inhabitants of Anna Maria Island, the area near my home in Florida.  My first book, The Lost Medallions of Ana Maria Cay - A Story of Anna Maria Island was self published in 2015.  I could not have done it without the incredible talent of my illustrator, Nancy Jean. She truly brought my little story to life. I am currently working on my second book, The Hidden Treasure of Calos.... Legend of the Shell People which centers on Southwest Florida, The Florida Keys and the Calusa Indians.
