Who am I?

Writer, Author, Pastor's Wife, Missionary, Teacher, Mom of Five ... That's me.  But I am also a fellow journeyman, pretty laid-back most of the time, insecure at others, a people-person who would rather be alone. A twisting of this and that, that makes me who I am.

I never even aspired to be a writer, but here I am!

My Writing

I believe there is redemption in every story... because I believe in the Author of redemption. There is no place too broken, too ugly, too dark where God cannot reach. Those are the kinds of stories I've experienced, and the kinds of stories I love to write about.

NY/NJ Chapter

When I moved back to NJ in 2016, I found a lack of support for the local community of writers. In response to that, I launched the NY/NJ chapter for ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) and currently serve as president. The local chapter offers monthly meetings hosted by professionals and laymen in the field of writing and publishing.
