Always Coming Back Home

An Emotional Tale of Love, Adventure, Tragedy and Hope will be available for pre-order on May 19, 2020!

Always coming back home: A true story of life, love and the greatest adventures is a book dedicated to the incredible life of my late husband. This book tells the story of a US naval officer and his bride. A romance that started with a simple introduction but spanned decades. An inside look at weathering military deployments and months apart, the adventures of scuba diving, sailing, world travel, and the truest love any two people have ever experienced. Through triumphs and tragedies, deployments and heartache, this book is my story. 


This is not only a book, but a process, and a reminder to throw away your bucket lists and to instead truly live your life, a life you will remember.

I just typed the final sentence of my first manuscript. You guys, I can't believe it. I'm a flood of mixed emotions. All of my thoughts are out there and now it's time for the editing to begin. I can't believe it. Stay tuned for what's next! 


The last chapters are within sight! Wrapping up writing and thoughts on final chapters and I simply can't believe just like that my first book is nearly done. AGH!


Just wrapped up chapter 12 and first round of edits and still maintaining the deadline of finishing this manuscript before leaving for Hawaii in May for the one year anniversary of Brian's death.
