Thank You!

Welcome to my “Thank You” page!

I created this page to thank all the wonderful people that have helped me become a better writer and in that process, a better person.

They get the best gift I could think of, a kitten in a teacup. Because who doesn’t need one every once in a while.  

Thank you to my amazing agent and overall fairy godmother, Saritza Hernandez from Corvisiero Literary Agency. We are going places!

Thank you to the ladies of the Pie Wish Coven, Lee Taylor and Peggy Friedman. I love you guys!

Thank you to the best writing and critique partner a girl could ask, Dr. Marie Friedmann Marquardt. I can’t imagine what the last year would have been like without your guidance and support.

Thank you to my fabulous test readers: Anita Byrne, Michelle Valladares, Alondra de la Cruz, Dr. Helen Vantine, Isaac Zapata and my sister, Lourdes Cuevas.

Thank you to my CNN colleagues for their support with my manuscript and my blog, especially Jackie Damico and Jessica Thill, who have kindly volunteered to edit my work on numerous occasions.

Thank you to the very talented artist extraordinaire, Sabrina Llenza, for designing my writer business cards.

Thank you to the wonderful Kenzi Tainow with Kenzi Tainow Photography for the beautiful photography on my website.

Thank you to Cameron Langford and Kelsang Nyema for helping me create my website. You were both a blessing.

Thank you to the fabulous Kelly Moore for lending us her family’s home in Big Canoe for our writers retreat.

Thank you to the members of the Georgia Romance Writers, especially to J. Perry Stone and author Romily Bernard, for their encouragement and feedback.

Thank you to my friends from Kadampa Meditation Center Georgia for their unconditional love and support.

Thank you to my husband, Chris, because without his inspiration and encouragement my manuscript would not exist. And to my two wonderful step-kids, Alex and Caleb, who teach me every day the magic of being a teenager.



Oooohhhh! A kitten! It’s going to be touch to come up with a gift this good for you. I think’k I’d owe you at least a dozen by now. Probably more, but who’s counting?


Oops. TOUGH, not TOUCH. See, I need your editing skills just to post a comment. I’m lost without you.
