Contemporary women’s fiction spiced with romance, threaded with life’s heartaches, and enriched with faith and hope—that’s what I love to write.
I grew up in Minnesota where life centered on family and friends, outdoor activities, pets, music, and reading. I also wrote short stories and terrible poetry. Then the fun writing stopped and I attended the university. I hold a doctorate in counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
A psychotherapist for over 30 years, I have a passion for encouraging people. I tell patients who feel dried up inside, “You can’t pour from an empty pitcher.” Writing for fun again, I hope my fiction not only entertains, but pours into readers’ deepest needs.
I live in Wisconsin with my husband and a houseful of hairy pets, not too far from the grandkids.
