Welcome to my world.  I am a writer, artist, beginning homesteader, and genealogy buff.  I live in the high desert of Northern Nevada in the historic Comstock area just outside of Virginia City. Wild horses, crazy weather, and open land to explore are some of my favorite things about living here.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Social Science. I have a lengthy background in law enforcement, corporate communications, and am currently enjoying being a substitute teacher in addition to being a full-time author.

2018 was my debut year as an author. I released 4 books in The Halfway Point Lodge cozy mystery series and am proud to say they were very well received.

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.
