All proceeds between September thru Christmas will go directly to Carteret Warriors for Recovery.

I appreciate your interest in my book and most of all your love for the Crystal Coast!    

I loved growing up on the Crystal Coast. I met my husband, David, while at East Carolina. Go Pirates! After marrying in 2010, we relocated from Raleigh to Morehead City where we are proud to be raising our two amazing children. 

While displaced, due to Hurricane Florence, our family spent time living on Atlantic Beach as well as in Beaufort. During that time, I spent a lot of time reflecting on just how lucky we are to live here. Our community offers each other so much help during times of trouble. 

We want to help pay forward all of the help we were offered & received last year after Hurricane Florence! So, Mommy found an easy way to help by donating all proceeds of the children’s book she wrote while we were displaced now through Christmas to Carteret Warriors for Recovery. 


To purchase your next copy, I encourage you to first check with your favorite local gift shops (SEA & PLAY and Teachers’ Pet have it for sure!), but it is also available on Amazon Prime.
