I attended the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington where I received a BA in English and Education. Post graduate school led to a Master of Library Science Degree from the University of Washington. I’ve been a classroom teacher and a school librarian.
When I decided to pursue writing, I began with short stories. After selling to the confession market, I decided to attempt a novel. The result was a romantic suspense, Home for the Heart.
Other publications include critical essays on writers, various articles on writing, and scripts for educational media.
I’m a member of the Seattle Chapter, the Evergreen Chapter, and the Faith, Hope, and Love Chapter of Romance Writers of America, and EPIC, and have been a conference speaker and workshop leader.
As an artist, I enjoy working in a variety of media, especially watercolor, colored pencil, and pen and ink.
My other spare time pursuits include photography, collecting children’s books, and anything to do with wire-haired fox terriers.
