I have been a merchant mariner, Great Lakes pilot, dog trainer, high school science teacher, high school English teacher, adjunct college instructor, coach, referee, (terrible) saleswoman, slam poet, line dance teacher, editor, and bumper boat technician. I used to think I had trouble making up my mind. Now I know I was just doing research.
My circuitous route led me to my dream job. Today I get to make up stories every day.
I have written over thirty books, including the bestselling Shelter Trilogy; the Gertrude, Gumshoe Cozy Mystery Series; and the new New Beginnings Series. My shorter works have appeared in hundreds of publications, including The Stolen Island Review, The Oklahoma Review, and Ledge Magazine. (NOTE: For a media-ready bio, click here.)
Thank you for visiting my online home, and please feel free to drop me a line. I love to hear from readers. God bless you and yours!
