Unscrambled Eggs[edit]

The book’s title was inspired by Joel Osteen, the pastor of the Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. In 2005, Unscrambled Eggs received the Poetry Book of Merit Award from The American Authors Association.

In 2007, Unscrambled Eggs was awarded Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s Noble Prize for Literature[1] and the Editor's Choice Award for outstanding literary achievement.[2]

Her articles and poetry have been published in national and international poetry journals, magazines and online news publications.
