My first book of poetry:
Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia- A Life In Poems
*Link to book on*
Published  February, 2008 (Grant House Publishers).

My second book of poetry:
My Magnolia Memories and Musings -In Poems
*Link to book on*
Published  February 2012.

I call both books a "celebration of the south and things southern". Using childhood memories, personal thoughts and dreams, I attempt to give a positive glimpse into the southern way of life. There are so many negative connotations associated with Mississippi and the south in general. I want to show a flip side of the coin.

There is much to love about this maligned and misunderstood part of our country. I would really love for you to get to KNOW Mississippi (and the south) in a different light.

I have made it my life mission to be a cheerleader of
Mississippi and all things southern !!!
From this Magnolia Girl to all of you :

with me (through poems) this place that I so
lovingly call home !
Y'all come back ,now....You hear???
