My writing career started while I was working as a nurse. I began writing to ease a depression I'd fallen into and eventually ended up going to a writing conference. There I learned the craft of writing and found my new career. My early books were of the self-help variety and you can take a look at these non-fiction books by clicking on the tab above. My love for fiction--both as a reader and writer led to my first novel, Kristen's Choice, and then on to a mystery series for kids, the highly acclaimed and award winning, Jennie McGrady Mysteries. Once I began writing mysteries I was hooked and began to write mysteries for adults as well as for kids. I think I'm up to sixty so far and still going.

Besides being a writer, I'm a wife mother, grandmother, great grandmother, an ex-nurse, mentor and a counselor with a master’s degree. I’m also a philosopher, gourmet cook, quilter, knitter and an artist. Oh, and a teacher. I taught creative writing on a 110 day cruise around the world!
