I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, aunt, uncle (don't ask), and teacher, author, speaker ... but, most importantly, a "woman after God's own heart." I live in Bridgewater, New Jersey with my husband of over 20 years and my three children. Writing stories is just about the best way I can imagine spending my free time. Each of my stories champions those emotions nearest and dearest to me: faith, joy, hope, and love.
I've always dreamed of being a mom, a teacher and a writer. I spent thirteen glorious years teaching, 4th grade, 5th grade and gifted & talented classes before I shifted over to full time mom-hood. The writing's always been there, though. I wrote curriculum and published my first book (a how-to student workbook) while still teaching and even in the midst of the babies coming I wrote a book on traveling with children and wrote curriculum in my capacity as a children's minister. Writing contemporary and historical fiction was a logical progression ... after all I had plenty of stories in my head.
I've always had stories in my head even when I was this little. It wasn't until I was forty-five years old that I discovered that everyone didn't have this wonderful gift.
I'm always writing. Just finished a historical fiction a few months ago and I average about two books a year, usually alternating between contemporary, historical, and nonfiction. The very best thing about writing is hearing from my readers and what they thought of my stories. Please stop by my Guestbook page and tell me what story you've read and what you thought of it, okay?
