Why I Started Writing:
After twenty-two years of teaching, a profession I considered my ministry as well as my job, I stepped out of the classroom only to find myself a little lost and without a real direction. My family encouraged me to write, telling me they loved my stories. I started writing, enjoying the experience of unfolding a story. I love it. Who knew? Of course, God knew. I am grateful to find a new and unexpected purpose.
Authors Who Have Influenced Me:
Western writers Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour have inspired my love of the American West. Francine Rivers and Beverly Lewis have demonstrated how a story can convey deep meaning.
Books I Have Written:
Wildfire For Rose was released in June of 2019, Renewed Redemption in February of 2020, and Train To Laramie in August of 2020.
What I'm Working On Now:
My love of American history has prompted me to produce several novels about the Old West. Settings include the Civil War, the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad, the California Gold Rush, wild horse hunting in the Rocky Mountains, and searching for treasure in the deserts of the Southwest. I hope to build my career, patiently moving each novel into publication.
