The Love Principle

Created in April 2015 the Love Principle changed my life. As a parent of a teenager I was able to effectively resolve conflict and create an atmosphere for my teen was able to communicate, trust and improve our life after a family tragedy. As a survivor of domestic violence I know the impacts and reality of PTSD and how traditional counseling is often unfit to help those suffering from its effects.

Reaching kids with a message about friendship, reducing anxiety and isolation, and improving home life and communication are all critical elements to reducing the effects of domestic violence among our children. What Love is all About and the Love Principle books reach those goals, and create a future without violence.


I began writing in college, and published my first book ten years later. Every Last Breath (a PTSD recovery novel), the Love Principle for kids, and my teen trilogy have changed my life and how I reach an audience far greater than I ever imagined. They bring the lessons of counseling to life in characters struggling with issues ranging from grief to domestic violence.
