I was born during the Summer of Love in Ashland, KY. I’m wife and mom of three, and a former chemist. I homeschool, I run a little, I’m a huge football and basketball fan, a hopeless nerd with a little techie geek thrown in. I teach Sunday school, I’m the Science Lady at Washington Elementary, and I am so left-handed. I have a little dog, and a hateful cat.
I started writing almost as soon as I left my “day” job. Well, truth be told, I’ve been writing since I was a kid. I modeled my favorite stories, or wrote sequels to them. I wrote a full length novel while I was in college, and it currently resides in a dusty folder under my desk.
I pursued writing for children and sold a story to Highlights Magazine.
After a writing exercise, a plot began to form, and a story began to nag at me, so in July 2005, I started work on the book that became Contingency.
In the meantime, I had several devotional pieces published in Cup of Comfort books and one in a Tyndale collection called Life Savors for Women.
In December 2010, Contingency, Book One of Covenant of Trust Series released. It hit #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Release list for Christian fiction. In May 2011, Contingency received two National Indie Excellence Awards- FINALIST in Religious Fiction and a WINNER in Interior Design. In September 2011, it was recognized as a Gold Winner from Reader’s Favorite.
Indemnity followed in April 2011, building on the success and popularity of Contingency and also became a #1 Hot New Release at Amazon.

God is behind all of this. He has engineered every step I’ve taken in my life- from college, to work, to bringing Jon and me together, to my children, to the stories and the doors opened (and closed) in pursuit of publication. Every experience passes through His loving hands, approved and designed to bring about deeper Christ-likeness in me and glory to God.
But mid-2005, I felt this nudge.There’s more to be told.
So many people question that Scripture is relevant, that it has the answers for us in this day and age, that it can speak to the deepest cries of our hearts.
I believe God’s word IS relevant, it DOES have the answers for us even in this day and age and it absolutely CAN speak to the deepest cries of our hearts.
I write to demonstrate that.
