Who am I?

Writer, Author, Pastor's Wife, Missionary, Teacher, Homeschooling Mom of Five ... That's me.  But I am also a fellow journeyman, afraid sometimes, insecure at others, a people-person who would rather be alone. A twisting of this and that, that makes me who 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 tell.

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 kicked off the NY/NJ chapter for ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) and currently serve as president. The chapter offers monthly meetings hosted by professionals in the field of writing and publishing. (See the ACFW drop down for more information)
