Welcome! I’m Darlene. I am a nomadic writer who wants to make the world a better place one connection at a time. I’m also one of the few people that can say she has a poem in space (thanks, NASA)!

My goal is to write 100 books that entertain, enlighten, and enrich the lives of my readers.

Why the hell would anyone be crazy enough to want to do this?

When I was little, I was the geeky girl who always checked out books, helped others with books, and always had a stack or three of books around. Books have helped me through many difficult times in my life and I know they have the capacity to lift us out of our lives. The best books are ones that we want to read over and over…we make friends with characters. Now I write stories to help entertain and encourage others. I hope you find a new friend or two among my characters.

Also, writing is fun and not writing is chaos. I breathe in by reading and exhale by writing. I’m still a certified Book Dragon!

One of my favorite characters I created is Julia, aka. the Zombie Slayer. She says we read books to prepare for what could happen…and hope that it doesn’t.

Grab a beverage of your choice and pull up a chair! I hope you enjoy what I write.
