Freda wrote poems at a young age because she loved making things rhyme. As a teenager, she was an avid reader once she discovered how books could transport her to other places. Being able to travel all over the world through books sparked her desire to create her own stories.
After reading her first Harlequin Romance in high school, ideas for her own love stories flooded her head. She wanted to create the type books that gave you the vision of other places; that made you laugh, cry, and get tingly all over. The ones that make you believe your own fairytale is possible!
Over the next few years, she plotted and wrote the first book in shorthand (yes she did). Excelling at shorthand in school, she thought it was the perfect way to keep wandering eyes from reading it until she was ready to share the book.
Deciding to marry, raise her children and work full-time, Freda put her hopes of becoming a published author on hold. When she retired from a career in law enforcement, she knew it was the perfect time to fulfill one of her lifelong dreams.
Now she is the author of The Hawaii Series, proudly named from her love of the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. It’s a three-book series with all of them written as standalone books. Some characters make appearances in other books, but it does not affect the storyline.
Book 1, Forbidden Love, was released October 30, 2017. Book 2, Finding Faith, is being published in late Fall of 2018. Book 3, Love’s Desire, is being published in the Spring of 2019.
