Amazon Kindle Publishing  

"I'm in the planning stages of creating my new book, "It's Not About the Butterfly." I was seeing so many signs from God while on this musical journey; I actually started taking photos of all of them knowing that people just wouldn't believe me unless I did! My new book is an inspirational photo journal of all of those encounters. 

As many of my closest family and friends know the butterfly has been a significant sign God shows me to encourage me to just keep going! I cannot wait to share my stories with you!"
