Welcome, friends!

While I am a longtime journalist whose work appears in publications ranging from The Wheeling Intelligencer to The Washington Post Magazine, I am also an Appalachian blogger and author.

My JOY Journal blog embraces such simple pleasures as faith, family time, iced coffee, vegan “cheese,” mixed-breed dogs and gardens that run wild.

My books include both non-fiction and Christian chick lit that is contemporary — meaning it’s clean read but there isn’t a single Amish buggy or Victorian-era cowboy. Learn more by clicking on my BOOK button above (which includes a FREE READ link to my 2020 release) or by visiting my Amazon author site at Amazon┬áKindle.
