I live in rural America. I am a wife, mom, teacher.
I love good stories and have for all of my life. Some of my favorite authors are C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, and Brian Jaques. Of course, I love making up stories of my own to write down or just to tell. My children and their friends graciously, and often appreciatively, listen to or read my stories.
I like to write for younger readers and one of my stories is called The Old Book Reopened. There are six, maybe seven more coming in this series. If you want to read along and give feedback, please do! The entirety of book one is presently here on the web site, divided into it’s chapters. You can leave comments at the ends of chapters. I love feedback that helps me improve my writing.
Some more of my favorite authors are: John Donne, Madeline Le’Engle, Nancy Farmer, Lemony Snicket, J. K. Rowling, E. Nesbit, Terry Pratchett, George MacDonald, G.K. Chesterton, Holly Black, Tony DiTerlizzi, Joan Hiatt Harlow, Jerry Spinelli, Cornelia Funke, and a few others.
