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 gritty but clean coming-of-age story found the right home. I am grateful to Deb Haggerty at Elk Lake Publishing for deciding to publish Rise on Eagles' Wings.
I love the writing and editing process. It's exciting to be inside a novel-in-progress, seeing the characters develop and change. They often surprise me. I hope they will surprise you, too, and become friends who will remain with you long after you've savored the last page of my debut novel.
I am humbled and grateful to report that in 2022 my novel manuscript Rise on Eagles' Wings was the Christian Genre Winner in the international Page Turner Awards. https://pageturnerawards.com/2022-best-writing-award-genres

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.
