My earliest memories are of the public library, standing in front of shelves filled with those little biographies of famous historical figures like Daniel Boone and George Washington and Sacajawea. I began scribbling stories at age 7 and thankfully never stopped. My passion then and now is history and all the wonders of past centuries.
I attended college at Denison University in Ohio and also in England, living in a manor/castle and studying the American Revolution from the British perspective. Shakespeare and 18th-century literature form the backbone of my English degree. Strangely enough, I only took one creative writing class. Thanks to that magical time, I love creating heroes of Scots and Irish descent!
It was never a desire of mine to be published. I simply love to write for the sheer joy of writing - and that was enough. But as Proverbs 16:9 says, "The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps."
Currently I'm living in Washington state with my real-life hero, Randy, and our two sons, Wyatt and Paul. It's a beautiful, rainy place - perfect for penning stories...
I hope my books bless you.
