Diagnosed with Multiple Personality and other mental illnesses, I created other personalities to help me survive trauma and abuse during my childhood. As an adult, I finally meet the personalities that I had created, only to find that they are Christian alters whom God will use to help me understand His love and mercy toward me. It is when God gives me the most difficult challenge I have ever faced - forgiving my mother for the immense emotional damage that she caused me - that I finally learn that I am worthy enough to let God love me and save me. "Redemption Through Forgiveness" is the first in a series of books about my journey through mental illness to find God's love and grace.
Born and raised in Illinois, I have been a Christian for 30 years. After graduating from Columbia College at the age of 42 I obtained BA's in Psychology and Human Services. I have worked in the health care field since I was a teenager. I am single and live with my fur babies - six cats and two dogs. When I am not writing, I like to listen to music from the 1970's and watch Korean soap operas.
I have been writing ever since I was able to hold a pen in my hand. Recently I decided to dedicate all of my writing toward spreading the message of God's love and salvation through both fiction and non fiction works. When I write, I have to do it the old fashioned way using pen and paper before I can put it into the computer!
Currently I am working on Redemption: Little One's Story. It is the follow up to Redemption Through Forgiveness: How God Used My Mental Illness to Save Me.
