My first book is titled "And I thought I'd be a nun:" my memoir. It details physical and emotional abuse as well as insurmountable amounts of love from the unloved. This book started out to be a therapeutic adventure for me and has now turned into readers reflecting on their past and being inspired by my strength and perseverance. There have been many women who have read my memoir and have opened up to me about their childhood and adult abuses.
As a child, I had a vivid imagination and loved television. I use to play with little objects like coins or wadded up pieces of paper. They were people to me and I made these objects act out scenarios. I wrote, made little costumes and directed a little skit for a class project in the fifth grade. In seventh grade I got caught writing a little story in class and because I got in such trouble I didn't write again until my senior year in a creative writing class. I also got a by-line in the school newspaper that year. I realized then that I wanted to write and or make movies.
I was brought up in the business world. With the combination of my business sense and my creative gifts and desires, I formed my own film/video business in the '90s after studying screenwriting and directing at the University of Oklahoma.
Because my passion is writing screenplays I plan on continuing to write in that format and hopefully, one day see one of my works on the BIG SCREEN.
I self-publish under my film/video corporation FIA/Films by Independent Artists, Inc., dba LilyHeart Publishing.
