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 and humor, though, for life must have those two things to sustain.

In 2014, I won the Commencement Contest for my WWII historical fiction short story, “Puddle of Remorse,” your gift for signing up for my quarterly author/editor newsletter.

If I were just a writer, my life wouldn’t be complete. When I’m not writing or researching the next novel, I’m a social media and writing consultant for beginning to intermediate writers; and an editor and proofreader for authors of every level; professional editing agencies; and publishing houses; as well as corporate companies and educational material for ministries.¬†In 2017, I completed nearly 90 projects.

And to add more fun into the mix… In addition to writing and editing, I’m the¬†Assistant Director of PENCON, a professional conference for editors and publishers, which is a division of Christian Editor Network LLC.

It’s great you’re here! Please stay as long as you’d like.
