She is an active member of Oklahoma City Christian Fiction Writers, American Christian Fiction Writers, and the Christian Authors Network. She has written over thirty books and has written more than 250 devotionals. Her historical fiction ranges from the Revolutionary War to World War II, from Texas to Vermont.
“I’ve had main characters from anti-God to extremely spiritual. If a character thinks of a Bible verse, or reads something during their quiet time, it’s because I do that. I put myself into their situation, and a verse comes to mind. If the Bible comes alive in our real world, it can in our story world as well.”
