All About Me

Shaky and the kids

Being a Mother and Wife were not my first jobs but they are my favorite ones!  They inspire me everyday in every way to be a better person.  I want them to be proud of me and I wouldn't be who I am today without their love and support.

Author/Speaker/Entertainer

I have been writing professionally for over 15 years.  My nine current published works are children's picture books and seven of the nine were inspired by two of my own children, Benjamin and Tatum.  I created a doll & plush to go with the Tiny Princess and Benjamin the Bear series because my own children have always loved having their characters with them whilst we read their favorite stories.  My next book will be a chapter book and is due out in 2021.  Oliver, my youngest son, will be the inspiration for my tenth children's book.  Two of my books, Rory's Golden Wing Adventure & Compassionate Souls, were written for local Houston-area schools to raise funds for their Arts Departments and I have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with such creative and inspiring children!  My personal favorite Authors are Stieg Larsson ,Liane Moriarty & Jo Nesbo and I currently have four books for older audiences on which I'm actively working to publish one day as well.

I have spent years working with essential oils for personal use and have now created a line available for everyone to enjoy!  Pure Body and Bath products are made at my home with only the most purest of essential oils and all organic ingredients.  The products have a shorter shelf life because the preservatives are natural.  But that just means you have the freshest ingredients the moment for your precious skin.  You won't mind because you will fall in love all of the wonderful BLENDS I have designed to enrich your soul, awaken your senses and hydrate your body.  I make lotions, sugar scrubs, bath salts, bath bombs, candles, roll ons and more.  For more information, please visit my website.  Just getting started with essential oils?  Great!  I'm excited for you.  It's never to late to start.  I have created a small guide to get started and would love to show you the many benefits of essential oils.  Contact me through my website for more information.
