I write books that take you on a journey

I love writing novels! Creating strong characters that take the reader on a journey that they can relate to gives me great joy! My newest release, Friends for a Thousand Years has one of those strong characters—Clara Simmons, a fifteen-year-old who finds true love for the first time.


But if you're more into becoming inspired to live your best life, I've written those as well. Take a peek below to find what inspires your spiritual growth.

Love Stories that Warm the Heart

A love story of passion and faith

Friends for a Thousand Years

It’s hardly ever easy to move a teenage child to a new town-much less a new state-when they are in high school. Leaving San Diego was unbearably hard for quirky fifteen-year-old Clara Simmons. She’d grown up on the beaches of southern California, had a fast-paced lifestyle, and life-long friends, including a boyfriend named Chet.


Clara soon learned that life is a perpetual cycle of change. There were no beaches in small-town Lizella, not 10 miles southwest of metropolitan Macon, Georgia.


Just when she thought she’d move back to California, her resistance shifted to acceptance. Her new neighbor, 16-year-old Jeremy Gorman, cast new light on living in the country. Missing the sandy beaches was no longer an issue-the Gorman family lake would be just fine. She spent more time there than at her home across the street.

Joy Through the Power of Storytelling

A Savior of a different kind

Miss Emma from Silverlake

One cold and snowy wintry night, a mysterious little stranger dressed in a little red riding hood coat appears on the door steps of the Silverlake Orphanage carrying only a suitcase and a sassy attitude.


Little Miss Emma, on assignment from God, turns lives upside down and backwards as she struggles to convince Miss Hoopy, overseer of eleven orphans, that she must live among them as she works to fulfill her assignment to save the orphanage. Her arrival was an answer to Miss Mary's prayers; the owner of the orphanage. Lucas and Serinda, angels assisting their protégé, guide the nine-year-old (parading as a human child) as she turns unbelief to faith while mending hearts. You’ll want to snuggle into your favorite chair as you read this delightfully inspiring Christmas story, Miss Emma from Silverlake.

A journey to answered prayer

Maddie Golden Discovers

the Pot of Gold

Nine-year-old Maddie Golden is not afraid of anyone, even a friendly spirit named Leznupar that has come to answer her prayer, that God give her a new heart so she can learn how to love. Maddie must first travel to the rainbow to learn the lessons from each of the seven colorful rays, and later, the pot of gold, for her prayer to be answered.


Just when she’s completed her journey over the seventh ray, the one of service, Cletus, her fur-friend and traveling partner, becomes ill, so she refuses to go on the last of eight journies.


Will Maddie discover what’s in the pot of gold, or has she forsaken the answer to her prayer by not completing the last trip to the rainbow? Maddie Golden is available in Paperback and Hardback.

The first step to freedom instead of the last

Forgiveness: The Missing Link

to Wholeness

Christianity has become an institution of multiplied and diverse beliefs, so it often overlooks the teachings of true fellowship. Forging beautiful relationships is part of Christ’s mission based on an understanding of the relationship between an individual human and the Son of God — and this truth is dying.


Since we tend to rely upon our own human emotions and mindsets, we have adapted ourselves to an erroneous characterization about what the life altering force of forgiveness accomplishes.


Our belief systems often contradict the truth about forgiveness God’s way; they may include selective reasoning about who is worthy (and who is not), of receiving it. We must awaken to know Christ's intent.

What the world needs most

Love Is: A Unifying Force

Depending on how interactive we are with others, most of us use the word love many times throughout any given day. We use the word love to express how we feel to our spouses, our children, our friends, our extended families, and generally those who communicate love. That is easy. Anyone can reciprocate like for like.


The more difficult task however, is giving love to those who are not giving it back, or to those who are acting in hateful and / or hurtful ways. To love someone in the midst of their darkest hour is truly the only time that love is seen. That is when we must open our hearts to see the deeper need.


Love is unconditional commitment to imperfect people. It can also be described as a unifying force.

Why suffering can be a beautiful thing

A Flower in the Garbage

This is Yvonne’s BEST SELLING BOOK – It's a wonderful and essential example about life principles and how they pertain to spiritual growth.


There’s a Flower in the Garbage shares aspects of real life lessons I learned while transforming our garbage dump into a flower garden. 1) We select the plot of ground; 2) we work it to make it fertile; 3) we plant the seed; and, 4) nurture it to maturity. The end result — a beautiful flower garden — exemplifies our own lives at various stages of growth. The reader will see how our own deity within constantly reaches towards the deity of God to take us out of the garbage piles of life and transform us into spiritual flower gardens.


I received this understanding when my father gave me a project in 1986 of turning our 18-year-old garbage dump into a flower garden.

Dig deep in the garden of your soul

My Daily Garden Journal: Nurturing the Garden Within

This 365-day working journal is a great tool that has been developed for the individual (or group) who desires that the Christ within help them grow into the authentic Image of who he or she was created to be. It is not meant to be an ordinary journal to simply record thought, although there is ample space for that.


Each month carries a theme for the reader/writer to concentrate on, such as : What areas of my life need to be set free?; People I need to forgive; Accepting who I was born to be, etc.


You are challenged to search the scriptures (or other sources) on the topic at hand to see what truth is revealed. At the end of the journal are blank pages to record your thoughts about the theme.
