My Life Verse:
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." -Isaiah 40:31
I'm a follower of Jesus Christ. It's my desire to glorify Him through my writing, my teaching, and my music.
I'm fascinated by historical research, discovering how individual people have impacted world events and shaped outcomes in extraordinary ways, especially during times of trauma and upheaval.
I believe if we don't learn from the mistakes of the past we're destined to repeat them. I write historical fiction because describing history through story is powerful, and I write inspirational fiction to demonstrate God's hand in our lives.

I'm a high school social studies teacher.
I'm a pianist for our church choir and congregation. My husband is the adult choir director, and I assist him in selecting music, planning and preparing for rehearsals, Sunday services, and special programs.

I love to research historical events and people!
