Well, hello there!


I am a women's fiction, YA fiction, and non-fiction author and blogger, journalist, literature teacher, non-profit consultant, mentor of women, homeschooling mom, lover of books and animals.  I've lived in every state on the West Coast and loved all of them. I find all humans fascinating, and my writing tends to reflect that, along with an evolving faith in God and hope for humanity. My work has appeared in numerous publications over the years in Seattle, Eugene, Portland, Spokane, Pullman, and points in between. I'm currently loving life in Boise, Idaho with my husband, two sons, two dogs, and two turtles.


The Ghost of Gold Creek is my first full-length novel and I'm so excited to share these characters with you. I hope you'll come to love them as much as I have! You can read a collection of my short stories in Passageways, a collaboration with author Val Gray and award-winning authors Becky Carey Lyles and Peter Leavell. You can read more about my work (and the things I love and the thoughts I have) by clicking on the blog tabs above, and do leave me a note on my contact page so I know you stopped by and we can keep in touch. I don't twitter (in real life or on the Internet) and I'm too shy for Youtube! But If you like what you read here, click on that little " f " down there and keep track of me via Facebook.
