Hey y’all,

I’m a Kentucky mama of four who loves art, music and is hopelessly addicted to the written word. As a child, my idea of “playing outside” was finding the perfect tree to sit in and read. Now that I’m a mama of four beautiful, book-loving kids, it makes me happy to watch them discover the wardrobe to Narnia, the little cabin in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and the sound Cam Jansen makes when she remembers something. These are the moments I treasure sharing with my own kids, and they are part of the reason I became a writer.

When I’m not at home–doing life with my kids or watching Netflix with my bearded, barber hubby–I can usually be found teaching art to K5-12th grade, playing violin for church or tackling the latest editing project for work.

I am very privileged to work with some excellent people in my positions as editor and online content creator for Heart to Heart Publishing, Historian for the Kentucky Christian Writers’ Conference and member of American Christian Fiction Writers. One of the best learning opportunities for me as a writer was judging the 2016 & 2017 ACFW Genesis Contest. Another great experience was entering the 2015 Promising Beginnings Contest where I placed as a finalist for my entry, Oceans Rise.

Favorite Verse: Ephesians 2:8

Love: God, My hubby, Dark roast coffee, and Dark chocolate

Hobbies: Violin & Mandolin, Songwriting with friends, Watercolor painting, and “Yarnin'” (knitting & crochet)

Passionate about: Women’s Ministry, Fighting human trafficking, and Missions
