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 music and art to ages K3-12th 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. I was a judge for the 2015 ACFW First Impressions Contest and my novel, Oceans Rise, placed as a finalist in the 2015 Promising Beginnings Contest from Kathy Ide.
