Welcome, friends!

Hello! I am an Appalachian writer who enjoys family time, coffee, vegan “cheese,” mixed-breed dogs, porch swings and daisies — not always in that order. If you’d care to join me on a slightly quirky journey through the joys of life, please check out my JOY Journal blog on this site.

If you like that, you might also enjoy my Christian chick lit — which doesn’t include a single Amish buggy or Victorian-era cowboy. I am a long-time journalist. My fiction is full of fun and faith, but is grounded in contemporary culture. That’s what we live — why shouldn’t we be able to read about it in good conscience!

My first title, Dune Girl, is a beach read guaranteed to have you thinking summer. Interested? Learn more under my BOOKS button or on my author page at at  Amazon KindleAnd, good news — if it’s your fiction fit —  more books are coming. Watch this site for release details on my Match Made in Almost Heaven series.

A non-fiction release is also coming soon! Watch this page and my BOOKS section for more information.
