“I was with book as a woman is with child.” ~ C.S. Lewis


A shot B&WContrary to what Google says, I’m not an international airport. I’m a writer. I write so that I can turn off the movies in my head at night and get some sleep, but then I wake up again and have to take  notes because I had a cool dream that might just make a good story some day. Seriously, it happens all the time.  I have pads of paper by my bed, in the car, in my gym bag, and in the shower (water proof!) because inspiration never strikes at convenient times. To date, I have 12 titles available on Amazon, and the paperbacks are also on Barnes & Noble.

The best thing to come out of writing all these books is the connection I’ve made to the independent author community, full of talent and heart. I’ve been helped along the way, and now I strive to pay that forward through an author network I founded called Clean Indie Reads. You can learn more about that through the menu tab above.

I’ve traveled three continents, stopping to live in Scotland as a child and Guatemala in my 20s. Now, I’m in Oregon with my adoring husband, my brilliant son, my vivacious daughter, my surly black cat, and my distractingly cute dog. When not writing, I’m reading (see my recommendations in the menu tab above), teaching, volunteering in the community with my kids, or attacking that mound of laundry that refuses to fold itself.
