She has reared Border collies, milked cows and made cheese. She continues to live her research in a cottage industry lifestyle, but for as long as she can recall, she has been wrapped in the arms of stories.
She penned adult historical colonial murder mystery CHARTER TO REDEMPTION, which was translated into the language of the Czech Republic, followed by its sequel, FOLLY. Her rural romance CENTRAL TO NOWHERE followed on its heels, with her first young adult novel WISH ME GONE recently published by Rhiza Edge.
