I am a teller of small town tales. Most of my stories begin in my own backyard in Eastern North Carolina, but may end up in Israel, Italy, Budapest or Morocco. Although they may not always know it, my characters are my friends, neighbors, relatives, classmates and colleagues. My books are full of laughter and tears, disappointments and happy endings. I invite you to enter my world. 

I am happily married to my high school sweetheart, Ricky Thomas. We have two lovely daughters, six very precious grandchildren, one fine son-in-law and one equally fine grandson-in-law who brought along a precious little great grandson! We make our home by the sea in southeastern North Carolina.

The older I get, the more important friends become. As the years go by, some friendships fade away but others grow deeper and deeper. I am blessed to have many dear friends that I could write books about (more than likely, I will!) but only a few that come in group form. :-) As usual, as the best plans go, there was no plan. The friends portrayed fictionally in this series "just happened" to come together in reality from time to time for fun or more often, to pray for and support one another. 

A few years ago, as a lifetime student of temperament and personality (In high school, I planned to be a psychiatrist!) I began to notice how different and delightful the personalities in our little group were and how well we complimented one another. I also began to take note of the sometimes silly and sometimes crazy things that happened when we were together.Laughter has been our greatest gift to one another. Add my revelations to our longing to travel and, voila! Sisters Together Forever was born.

You will find that in all the books in the series the basis for the sisters' relationship is "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts." I believe that is true of groups of friends as well as the cherished one-on-one relationships I have with other friends---particularly my "historic" friends as one person calls them! The ones who are always there for me.You know who you are!

I hope that the Sisters Together Forever Series offers you friendship and laughter, fun and adventure. "A merry heart doeth good like medicine" and if I could make just one heart merry today, I would be extremely happy.
