My Work As An Author

As a writer, I want people to read my stories. I want my words to cause them to stop and think about the world around them. I want readers to make the story their own, to live in the world of my characters, step inside the shoes of someone else for a bit and see life from a different point of view.

Upper-Middle Grade and Young Adult Novels

I started with picture books, now I write upper-middle grade and young adult novels. I started writing seriously when I was in my mid-40’s. It had been a dream ever since I was a child, and the journey along my path was filled with many obstacles - growing up in a doomsday cult, and having undiagnosed dyslexia and ADHD. Because of that, I write about the underdog, the victim, the survivor, and the healed.

My current finished project is titled the Truth is a Lie, a young adult novel. I am looking for a home for this book right now, stay tuned for details.

Picture Books for Children

As the middle of seven children, I began my writing career by creating books for my little sisters and forcing them all to be in the plays I wrote and directed. When my three boys were young, I put my creative spirit to work teaching them to read and create stories of their own. As they grew older, I found ways to keep on creating by writing books for children with fun, whimsical themes.
