I’m a retired high school English teacher with a passion for working with kids. I've conducted Medieval Writing Workshops for elementary/middle schools and the Colorado Girl Scouts. My Arthurian Tales (Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend and Young Knights of the Round Tale: The King's Ransom) are great for reluctant readers. Along with these are the first of my stories from the ancient worlds. Both Tutankhamen Speaks and Sons of the Sphinx are set in Ancient Egypt.

Birth Place: Littleton, CO USA

Accomplishments: Writer of award-winning historical fiction for young readers and those young-at-heart. Young Knights of the Round Table: The King's Ransom and Sons of the Sphinx are Children's Literary Classics Silver Medal Winners. Tutankhamen Speak is a CIPA Merit Award winner.
