I have been married to my college sweetheart for almost 20 years. We have four wonderful kiddos; two teens and two preteens. I received my undergraduate degree in Secondary Education from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1991 and went on to acquire my early childhood certificate in 1993. In order to date (and later marry) my husband, I began serving in our church’s youth group. Together we served the teens for ten years. I spent the next decade serving in children’s, special needs, and family ministries.
My hobbies include teaching my teens how to drive and driving my preteens across the Wisconsin countryside. I love reading big people books (you know the kind without pictures) and writing for young adults and tweens.
I write because I can and because every now and then, I don’t have the choice, it just takes over. My best inspiration comes from God, during long walks on country roads with my greyhounds, Dasher and Mary.
