I love to discover the character of God through my own circumstances, so why not through
the ups and downs of my characters' lives?
These people go through trials, temptations, and trauma that I've never experienced, but God is the same in their circumstances as He is in mine.
He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
And He is the same faithful, beautiful creator/savior for every person, without exception.
Like every woman, I've worn many hats over the years. Wife, Mother, Grandmother, homeschooler, aromatherapist and essential oil blender, natural health enthusiast, midwife, missionary, education assistant for kids with special needs. I also enjoy different cultures, foods and languages. And of course, I enjoy writing, especially when I can include some of these other interests in my stories.
I write fiction and non-fiction. My fiction ranges from YA fantasy, to Women's contemporary to Biblical. I've written newsletters, articles, short stories, novellas and novels. For non-fiction, I've written about natural health and wellness.
