Welcome! I'm glad you're here. If you get tingles the moment you walk into a bookstore or library, you're not the only one. So many books, and never quite enough time to read them all. I hope my novels will bring you a sense of wonder, laughter, something to ponder, and a gleam of hope.

After a decade of writing and revising, my "bittersweet coming-of-age story with a healthy gleam of hope" was released in June 2023 by Elk Lake Publishing Inc. Available on Amazon. https://amzn.to/46vPpTP
I hope the characters in my novel will surprise you, and will remain with you long after you've savored the last page.

A hundred-year-old Midwestern friend told me that from the mid-1930s until 1950, the USPS delivered mail to her home twice a day, and sometimes three times daily before Christmas. In the 21st century, it's still a pleasure to hold a real letter penned by hand. I hope my novel will feel as tangible to you.
