About the Author

Writing has been my life since I first picked up a pencil before I entered school. I learned the alphabet and the word AT. After that I went down the alphabet rhyming words. It was intoxicating! 

By the time I left third grade, I was writing stories and knew one thing--I wanted to be a writer. (I also wanted to be a jockey, before there were women jockeys. I was deep into the Walter Farley "Black Stallion" books.) 

I geared my education to become a writer. In high school I won writing awards and sold my first short story. During college I began selling my stories and articles. I graduated with a comprehensive degree in Journalism--a very good foundation for any type of writing. 

Now, many books later, some traditionally published, some with small publishers and some self-published, I still write for my career. (Some of those books won awards.) I have a regular column in a regional newspaper. I write short articles for Internet clients. And still develop book projects. 

What I write reaches all ages. Interesting how, as my own children grew up, I wrote stories for their different ages and stages. I write both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and historical, mystery, fantasy and even romance. I also write about the moral, cultural and political issues of the day.

 I write from a caring, life-affirming, Christian perspective. You'll find here books and writing to challenge, convict, encourage and lift up. 

Enjoy the journey. CRS
