Meet my three books

Like many authors, I think of my books as children. My oldest is an overacheiver now on its third edition. My middle child is the quirky one -- the erotic memoir that's only sold paired with jewelry. And my youngest is the helpful one, the one that wants to save you and then the entire world.

Get to know all three of them below...
