Corn and Shrimp SoupSeafood and Louisiana just go together.
You can’t have one without the other.
Soups and stews are some of our most popular dishes here in the South.
And one of MY personal favorites is Shrimp and Corn Soup.
It’s rich and creamy and simply delicious.
It’s simply as one of my favorite saying about food states, “A party in your mouth.”

Heartfelt Gratitude… Love After Pain

Authors write books from our hearts. Our stories may sometimes be fiction, but within every story is a large dose of reality.

What a difference 8 months makes…

Eight months ago, in the middle of summer, with my kids home and my husband offshore, I got this crazy idea. I decided that I no longer wanted to edit other authors books, but instead I wanted to write a book of my own.

I sat down at the end of my dining room table and I wrote. The first day, I wrote over 9000 words.

I’d had this idea for a book in my head for a very long time and I decided it was time for it to come out. Continue reading
