SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESHello, hello! I’m so glad you stopped by! For me, writing is like breathing: I can’t live without it. Historical fiction is a favorite.

I’m an author, writing historical fiction set in the Midwest during the world wars that explores fraying family relationships, broken dreams, and determination to rescue both.

I’ve been published since 2002, both in print and online. In 2014, I won the Commencement Contest for my WWII historical fiction short story, “Puddle of Remorse,” which was concurrently published in Fountains, the student literary journal at the college I attended.

I’m a social media and writing consultant; and an editor and proofreader for beginning, indie or self-published, best-selling, and traditionally published authors, professional editing agencies, and publishing houses. And you—if you’re interested.

In addition to being a writer and editor, I’m the¬†Assistant Director of PENCON, a division of Christian Editor Network LLC started by Kathy Ide to encourage editors through networking and cooperative networking. (CEN is formerly known as The Christian PEN: Proofreaders and Editors Network.) I’m honored to join such an inclusive team.

It’s great to have you! Please stay as long as you’d like.
