A Thanksgiving holiday takes an unexpected turn when a black Cocker Spaniel shows up on Benjamin's doorstep.

The joy of reading.

I was lucky as a child - I was raised in a family that valued learning.  By the time I entered kindergarten I knew how to read, print, and write in cursive.   Trips to our local library were as regular as visits to the grocery store.  One summer I entered a reading contest at the library and won, my literary tally at over 40 books.  

Now I'm the one writing stories that I hope will find their way into the hands of an eager reader, ready to embark on an adventure that I've imagined, crafted, and tucked between the front and back cover.

The Red Door

Emmie Malone discovers a can of red paint in the attic.  When she paints her bedroom door, it opens a gateway to a globe-trotting adventure.

The Mystery at Moz Hollow

Maggie and Laura stumble upon an unsolved mystery in a Gothic 
mansion in northern Minnesota that has been transformed into a
​movie set.  The two girls face danger after uncovering a hidden treasure!

Scotland's Knight:The Rose in the Glade

Medieval Scotland. Sir Lennox Brodie, a powerful knight, leaves his homeland to fight in the Crusades. 
​It’s a vow he’s bound to fulfill and an escape from the devastation over the death of his wife and two daughters. He returns famous, scarred, and wealthy, with his soul still in tatters.

Lennox encounters Maggie Weaver when she mistakenly enters the sun-dappled glade that belongs to him. The secluded, tranquil spot becomes the backdrop for healing, redemption, and the capacity to love again. It’s also where the unthinkable happens, giving pain and heartache free reign to test their relationship - something not even the strongest knight can protect.

Available in e-book and paperback. 
Additional books in the Scotland's Knight series coming soon!
