I’ve been married for 25-plus years to my special education/math-teaching, football-coaching husband. We have three kids ranging in age from 17 to 24 including a daughter with Cornelia de Lange syndrome and a running son with allergy-induced asthma plus chronic stress fractures.
I learned to read at age 4 and haven’t been far from a book since. With my love of books, putting my own thoughts onto paper came naturally. While blogging, writing articles, and self-publishing my non-fiction books and devotionals came relatively easily, my dream was to someday be traditionally published in fiction. In December of 2014, I got my first fiction contract from Bling! and in 2018 officially dipped my toes into the indie publishing world. And twelve novels later, I’d say that dream is a reality!
In addition to my personal writing, I’ve also started The Author Toolbox, an online coaching business, to help other authors find the practical tools to build a book, a platform, a business, and a career. Along the way, I discovered how much I LOVE brainstorming plot possibilities with other authors and have added novel critiques to the services I provide as a writing coach. That skill opened the door to a Senior Editor position at Anaiah Press where I currently acquire and edit Christian romance novels. I’ve also spoken at schools, writer’s groups, and women’s gatherings on a wide variety of topics including faith, family, and fiction.
Speaking of faith, I’m a pastor’s kid and grew up in church. My relationship with Jesus Christ is the glue that holds the rest of my crazy life together and pops up in everything I do.
I’m a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and a founding member of Front Range Christian Fiction Writers. I have been honored to be an ACFW Genesis Finalist in 2009 (women’s fiction), Semi-Finalist in 2011 (contemporary fiction), Double Finalist in 2014 (short novel category), and Winner in 2014 prior to getting published. I’m also a fan of Novel.Academy where I continue to hone my craft so I can write better stories faster.
Currently, I email my newsletter subscribers every other week and blog once or twice a month. You can find links to social media outlets in the header although I’m spending more and more time actually writing new stories than posting those places.

Thanks for stopping by! May your life’s journey be filled with stories of faith, hope, and love.
