I am a retired teacher of twenty-nine years and a published author. I currently have three adult fiction novels published with Eternal Press. My first chapter book for children, THE GHOST OF STONEBRIDGE LANE, from Dragonfly Publishing, Inc. was released February 2014.   This was the first book in The Stonebridge Ghost Tales juvenile fantasy chapter book series (rated-G for ages 8-12). The second book in the series, THE GHOST OF THE FROZEN NORTH, was released in March, 2015.   The third book in the series, THE GHOSTS OF STONY MANOR, was just released in April, 2015. My first picture book for 3-7 year-olds, NAKITA’S BIG QUESTION, was released in September 2014.

My husband, Kevin, and I have been married for forty-eight years. We have two grown children, Amy and Andrew, one grandson (Christian) the star of Stonebridge Ghost, a lovable Yorkie named Minnie who we rescued from a puppy mill, another Yorkie named Buddy who we recently rescued and joined our happy family, a grand-dog named Manny, and a grand-cat named Sally.

I enjoy the seasons Indiana has to offer. I love snow activities, water sports, walking, zip-lining and, of course, writing. My daughter and I have competed in ten Mini-marathons.  My grandson, Christian, and I took up paddle-boarding in Key West and climbed a rock wall on a cruise ship over the Caribbean Ocean!

067My son, Andy and his wife, Erin climb 14,000+’ mountains in Colorado. I checked off one of my bucket list items:  I climbed Mt. Sherman at a height of 14,036′ with Andy and Erin.  My bucket list is lengthy, but I have every intention of completing it with God’s help!
