“I love stories and listen for stories when I share meals with friends, visit a new place, or walk outside and see that my goats have escaped one more time…writing is how I share stories with others and hopefully offer encouragement and insight into various situations.

When not writing, I work on the organic blueberry farm that I share with my husband, John, or milk our goats, weed in my garden, play my harp, sew quilts and drink tea with friends. I live a blessed life and am thankful for editors, readers and reviewers who enjoy what I write.”
