About Me

Welcome to my world.  I am a writer, artist, homesteader, and a genealogy buff.  I recently released the first two books in my debut cozy mystery series, The Halfway Point Lodge.  I'm proud to say both Stairway of Secrets and  Lifetime of Lies have been very well received and are being read worldwide.

As a lifelong creator, I am excited and grateful to be able to share not only my stories and art but pieces of me as well.  I invite you to take a few minutes and look around this site to see the wide variety of projects I have in the works.  There is always something happening around here.

Artistic endeavors

While writing is my primary creative outlet, I also create other works of art.  I enjoy mixed media, collage, and altered books.

Homestead Adventures

I'm a country girl at heart and home is definitely where my heart is.  Follow along with our adventures.


We are who we are because they were who they were.  My journey into the past to learn who they were.
