         Since publishing my women’s contemporary novel A Case of Hearts in the fall of 2013, I’ve had incredible experiences. Being able to talk to groups at libraries, community centers, women’s meetings, and conferences. I’ve attended many craft and vendor shows. I’ve enjoyed meeting many readers and writers on this journey. Publishing my first novel had been a dream come true. The success of that book pushed me to write my next women’s contemporary story titled She Promised Her Heart. This book was released in October of 2015.

         Despite not having the opportunity to go to college, I am incredibly grateful to my father for encouraging me to learn how to type. He always said that my typing skills would serve me well. Since I have worked in a variety of roles throughout the years, I am appreciative of my father’s advice. Typing skills have not only proven to be useful in many of my previous occupations, but it has also allowed me to pursue my passion for writing.

           I live in a home along the Des Moines River, at Pella, Iowa with my husband, Cliff.  We have a blended family of five grown children and seven grandchildren. Number eight will be a Christmas gift in December 2017.  Jessie, our seventy-five-pound German wirehair pointer who believes he’s a lap dog, rules the house.
