I remember the first time I met Loree; it was at a conference in Gainsville, TX. She was the keynote speaker, and I was a guest speaker. Before we addressed the attendees, Loree introduced herself. She was so gracious; one would never know they were speaking face-to-face with a best-selling author of hundreds of novels.
I wear dual hats as a writer/ author and publisher. It’s not always easy, but I’ve learned and continue to acquire new knowledge in this ever-changing industry of publishing. When I write, I can’t wear my ‘work’ hat, it ruins creativity. And when I work, I can’t write. It’s not unusual for hundreds of manuscripts
My new book BITTER BETRAYAL like the award-winning title, The Greenlee Project, focuses on consequences of action. I’m passionate about protecting impressionable teens that are between the ages of thirteen and sixteen years olds.

Most writers have written a piece at some point in their lives that is special to them; I am no different. My piece has become a series, one that I will probably continue to write until my ideas no longer flow anymore. I always think of this piece as my mother’s book since I originally

To ensure the audience smiles laughs, cries, becomes angry or hurts for the characters that make up the story line.
What inspired the story, The Greenlee Project? I was asked that recently, authors are asked that question frequently about their work. Since this book is important to me, personally and the topic, I thought I’d share in detail my inspiration for the book. Writing this piece took me to a dark place, as a writer,
I have worked with many people over the years that think like this; black and white or this and that. They are often analytical, work strategically and are good at what they do. I often work the same way; strategically and analytically. However, I do find that thinking in shades of pinks, aqua’s or how
