Why I Started Writing:

After 22 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 had a huge impact on my love of the American West. Francine Rivers and Beverly Lewis have shown me how a good story can convey deep meaning.

Books I Have Written:

Wildfire For Rose was released in June of 2019. My next book, Renewed Redemption, is scheduled for release in early 2020.

What I'm Working On Now:

My love of American history has prompted me to produce several novels about the Old West. They take place during and after the Civil War, during the Transcontinental Railroad construction, the California Gold Rush, wild horse hunting in the Rocky Mountains, and searching for treasure in the deserts of the Southwest. Also, I have completed a futuristic trilogy about a young girl forced to take the lead in her survivors clan. I’ve written a contemporary novel and have another one in mind I hope to complete soon. I hope to build my career, patiently moving each novel into publication.
