Reading has always been a hugely important part of my life, though I never thought I’d be  on the author side of things.

I hope I can give readers the same experience I have enjoyed through the years while curled up with a good book!

love my awesome family…and reading, writing, genealogy, and Hershey’s Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate Toffee & Almond Nuggets (can the name be any longer?). I live in Mesa, Arizona and write Young Adult fiction and Christmas Romance. I also create book journals in honor of my mom Eileen (Book Love by ej journals), for those who like keeping track of what they read. All available on Amazon!

IDEAL HIGH is my debut novel

I recently retired my freelancing gig but for over fifteen years I wrote human interest stories for a regional newspaper with the last–I don’t know how many years–writing a genealogy column called Family History Corner. I have 17 grandchildren with one on the way!
