I have always had the writing bug but it was not until I retired from a teaching career that I could devote enough time to fulfill my writing dreams. My first picture book was independently published in 2016 and so began the Maisie series. I now have 4 titles featuring the mischievous little beagle who travels the world and beyond in search of adventure. Fast forward 2 years and my first Inspector Maisie, Super Sleuth chapter book was released. I now have 2 titles in this series. Maisie has grown up and is an extremely clever detective who can solve even the most difficult cases. It is so much fun writing and sharing my books with kids.
