About Me

I live with my husband Bill in Edmond, Oklahoma. After twenty-three years of teaching high school English and coaching girls tennis, I'm enjoying retirement and wondering why it took me so long to find my true calling. 😉 But that doesn't mean I'm taking it easy. In 2011, I published my award-winning YA novel, Beyond the Farthest Star. In 2017, I published my inspirational novel Some Form of Grace. My latest effort is a children's chapter book, Ron Finds His Courage, inspired by my grandson's pet bearded dragon! When I'm not writing, I'm filling my days with the things I love: traveling between Oregon and Nashville to visit family (which includes two adorable grandsons), taking lots of vacations, reading, exercising, and volunteering at my church.

My "grand lizard" Ron! Doesn't he look noble
and courageous? I'll bet you can see why
I was inspired to write a book about him.
