A dream come true - touching the trees Pa Ingalls planted in De Smet, South Dakota

Welcome to my website! I'm glad you stopped by. When I meet with children during Author Visits, the first question that I'm usually asked is, "Did you always know that you wanted to be a writer?"  The answer is yes!

As a child I loved to daydream and tell stories.  When I finally realized, sometime in high school, that anyone could become a writer, I decided to learn everything I could about how to write.  It took a long time for my desire to become a published author to come true. Would you believe almost thirty years?

Now that my dream has become a reality I am committed to helping others experience the joys of writing. Through Author Visits and Book Unit Studies, I hope to teach both young and old alike how they too can become a writer!
