Fiction Novelist and and traveler extraordinaire.


Background Information

I grew up on a dairy farm, northwest of Towands, Kansas and wrote my first book in the second grade. Many years passed before a journalist suggested I write an article for the local newspaper. That sparked a thirty-year writing career that has provided much joy. Along the way, I also enjoyed a career as a travel agent  from which I am now retired. 

Five years ago, I enrolled in Bible Study Fellowship and have since graduated. It was through these classes that I added yet another form of writing career--the Christian market. Since, I have been fortunate to write for several Christian magazines, publications, and a Christian novel.

These days I devote all my time to writing and working for my church. If my writing touches one person in a positive way, I am truly grateful.

In 2010, AWOC publishers released my first devotional book, Devoted to Traveling. The book is a chronicle of my travels written with lessons learned.

In 2011, I published two ebooks available on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com. A Plane Tree in Provence which details the adventures, soul searching, and mischief of five women as they travel through Provence, France. (A secular novel which won first place in the Kansas Authors Club contest of 2011) It was published as a paperback book in May, 2012. 

Angel on My Shoulder, (Christian Fiction Novel) is set in Brooklyn, New York and tells the story of Pringle Taylor, who is engaged to the wrong man, loses her job, and finds herself changing everything in her life. 

In 2012, The Cape Elizabeth Ocean Avenue Society was released for Amazon Kindle and also as a paperback. This novel is second in the Plane Tree Series and begins as the five women return home from their holiday in Provence. Find out what happens to Penny when she confronts her husband of having an affair. 

In 2014, the third novel in the Plane Tree in Provence series was published as an ebook and also a paperback edition. Sarah's Choice: with a little help from Tuscany and centers on Sarah whose conscious is heavy with an affair she had in France. Should she tell her husband? Things get complicated when the Frenchman arrives in the states and threatenes to destroy her marriage. 

Accomplishments

I'v been fortunate in receiving numerous awards including Writer of the Year (twice)and Article of the Year from East Wichita News, and First Place for poetry in the OWFI contest, and first place for a feature article in the HACWN contest. My novel, A Plane Tree in Provence also won First Place in the 2011 Kansas Authors Club contest.

Additional Information

I have been fortunate to be included in six Chicken Soup for the Soul books, and am now busy working on a non-fiction book of my writing retreats to Maine for the past twenty plus years.

I have a monthly blog to keep fans updated and sincerely try to keep it current.

The Cape Elizabeth Ocean Avenue Society
This novel is the second in the Plane Tree series, and begins when Penny Wilson arrives home from the France trip. How does she cope with a suspected wandering husband? The book was just released and available in paperback and so as an ebook.
