SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESHello, hello! I’m so glad you stopped by!

I write historical fiction and nonfiction set in the Midwest during the world wars that explores fraying family relationships and broken dreams with the determination to rescue both. Not without a bit of romance, mystery, and humor, though, for life must have these things to sustain us.

We face fraying relationships and broken dreams at some point on this journey of life. We get hurt. We are broken. And we want to not feel so lost and abandoned. In my life, I’ve encountered those hopeless moments of loss and gut-wrenching pain, raw feelings of betrayal, and fear of failure. And our response to these crises really matters. That’s why I write. For you. To share with you that through our broken lives and the broken things in our lives we can indeed rise stronger than ever before and trust in the one who created us and who will give us a sure, bold purpose to reclaim here on earth.┬áIf you are hurting, if you desire to strengthen your faith out of the gritty and emotionally devastating circumstances of life, and if you desire to couple all that with love and laughter, then please join my characters in the journey from broken to reclaimed.
