ABOUT ME I’ll begin with the fun stuff. I’ve been married to the same great guy for forty years (wow, that happened fast!) and have three sweet, amazing, talented children. Our daughter-in-law and son-in-law are equally amazing and talented individuals; plus, we have three sweet, awesome, adorable grandchildren (email me if you’d like me to tell you more about them ☺). You can also read more about me in my poem: Steve and I have lived in Idaho for less than ten years, but we love our beautiful adopted state and all that it offers. I especially appreciate the abundance of outdoor activities available nearby, from camping, hiking, kayaking and biking to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. I also walk almost every day and grow a small garden each summer. I like to read (no surprise, huh?), especially if I can plunk my camp chair under a shady evergreen beside a burbling creek and have a few peaceful hours to soak up fresh air and new ideas. For those who wonder how I got my start writing, my journey to print has been a fairly typical one for a writer. As a kid, I loved the smell of erasers (remember those tan, rectangular erasers?), the feel of a No. 2 pencil between my fingers, and the thrill of opening a new Big Chief writing tablet at the beginning of the school year. I wrote stories, drew pictures (most had mountains in them) and scribbled arithmetic problems on those soft, beige pages. Since then, I’ve written, edited and published a variety of writings, fiction and nonfiction. I enjoy the freedom and fun of fiction (Winds of Wyoming, Winds of Freedom and Passageways), but I also love to transcribe the stories of real people whose lives have been forever transformed by our loving God (It’s a God Thing! and On a Wing and a Prayer). If you've read.... If you’ve read Winds of Wyoming, Winds of Freedom, the newest Winds of Change, or On a Wing and a Prayer, you already know my heart hurts for individuals who live in dangerous environments, serve time behind bars or are imprisoned by human traffickers. Here are some organizations that rescue captives and lead them to physical, emotional, and, in many cases, spiritual freedom. • Wipe Every Tear – • Shared Hope International – • Demanding Justice – • Polaris Project – • The Abolitionist Movement – • Destiny Rescue – • Sarah’s Home – • Love146 – • Along Side Ministries – • Rebecca Bender (sex trafficking survivor) – • Chrysalis Transitional Living – • Urban Youth Outreach – Many more great groups work in this arena. These are just some I happen to know a bit about. Take a moment to look at two or three sites. God just might lead you to get involved with one of these agencies/ministries. Looking for hope in all the wrong places ~ Looking for hope in all the wrong places ~ is my motto when writing about the underside of life on this dark planet, and my favorite scripture verse is Romans 15:13 ~ May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.~ I enjoy connecting with readers, so please find me on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+.
