We are thrilled to have you visiting today.
With the huge give
away going on what item are you offering to our wonderful readers?
can snail mail a signed paperbook or an e-version of “Be Not Afraid”,
my first published book. I have switched publishers, so these are
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
grew up in California, and moved with my husband and son to Oregon when
I was 30. It’s easy to see why the Pacific Northwest is called “God’s
Country”. It’s beautiful here—even Portland has a beauty that permeates
the urban landscape. I’ve been writing all my life; the written word
has always been my closest friend. When I’m not writing books, I am
blogging book reviews and author interviews. And when I tire of the
computer, I work in my yard or make quilts. Our son is now in Brazil,
working on his masters degree in biotech, and our daughter is more
local, working on her art major and designing my book covers.
What genres do you like to write?
it or not, NOT horror, which is what my book series can be partially
considered. I don’t really have any boundaries, but romance and poetry
are right out. Might as well ask the cat to do algebra.
What is your newest release?
first book in my series, entitled “Pride’s Downfall”, will be released
in October of this year. It is called “UnHoly Trinity”, and it’s a
prequel to “Be Not Afraid”.
What are you working on right now?
Book 4 of the series, “Enoch’s Return”. I think that will be the last book of the series, although I can’t be certain.
Any future projects you can hint about?
have a lot of little moths of ideas flapping about in my mind, but when
they get written is a matter of speculation. The series may not be
finished with me yet.
As a writer can you give an aspiring author any advice or some of your wisdom??
important—write to be read. That is to say, make sure your book is as
good as it can get before you market it. Get beta readers, get an
editor, just make sure the story flows and that the sentences all work
together correctly. There is nothing harder on a reader than mental
whiplash from story lines that have great jagged cracks in them.
If you could meet one character from your books who would it be and why?
From a Christian standpoint, the answer is easy: Jesus. My one true love and the source and reason for my existence.
Are there any other people or authors that have inspired you or helped you along the way?
book I have ever read has prepared me to write. Without knowing how to
get an idea across, one of the best lessons books teach, my stories
would just be aimless drivel. I certainly hope they aren’t!!
How about some fun stuff?
what is your fav activity besides writing?
lot of that depends on the season. Summer sees me outdoors whenever
possible, working in my yard or walking. I love a good nature-trail
hike. Winters (and any night, really), I like to work on quilts. I’ve
been making them for fifteen years, and have yet to run out of a desire
to make more.
Do you own any pets?
have a 17-pound cat named Dusty. She is half Maine coon. The other
half is, I don’t know, elephant or something. Big girl. It’s all
Fav place to travel?
best trip I have ever taken was a 10-day excursion to Scotland with my
best friend and our daughters. The visit was a lifetime too short.
First time I ever drove on the left-hand side of the road. In a
Mercedes. Exciting times…
Fav author you can recommend to our readers?(can have more than one)
really depends on the genre. I like so many, I have a list I’ve drawn
up just to keep track. Every once in awhile, I peruse the book sites to
see if they have published anything lately, then get the books at the
library. My favorites are Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fforde, and Shirley
Bible would be first, although I’ve only read through it once in its
entirety. Took three years…There are so many other books that I love
that I couldn’t even begin to come up with only a couple. If pushed, I
would say Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.
and finally where can we find you and your books (include links)

auspices of my previous publisher. However, I have social links:
