She produced, wrote, directed and starred in the gospel play, “The Devil Touched Me Twice”, the story of one woman’s fight to hold on to her family as she battled tests and trials one after the other armed with prayer and an unwillingness to give up even in the face of defeat.  She has written many poems, short stories and skits, as well as performs her pieces at various local churches such as, “Motherless Child” and the most popular, “A Southern Woman Celebrating Life”.  Her writings have been featured in the Benton Spirit Community Newspaper, Str8up Magazine in the UK, Women of the Word E-Magazine and Sight 360 Magazine in South Bend, IN.
