About Me

Welcome to The Balanced Writer! I'm a Southern girl and published author, trying to balance life with friends, family and everything else in-between. Join me for thoughts, favorites, cool giveaways, recipes, bad habits, good habits, book reviews and some visiting authors and publishers, too. Life is a journey for each of us, no matter the path we choose. On my adventure, writing helps me to endure. Check out my official bio below, and visit my website to learn more about my clean romances and historical books.
