I'm a professional writer with a solid background in publishing.  As a senior editor and creative manager in Golden Books' Activity Products and Audio divisions, I managed the creative development of activity books and award-winning audio/book products.

As a freelance writer, I've written dozens of books and collaborated with Christian celebrities: Sheila Walsh, Sarah Young, Thomas Kinkade, John MacArthur, and John C. Maxwell. 


Most of my writing projects are Christian devotionals for adults and children as well as children's picture books, board books, nonfiction books, and K-6 Language Arts workbooks and textbooks. I've also created kid's meal promotional material for a leading fast-food restaurant, consulted on new product development, and mentored young writers. 

I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, a master's degree in Library Science/Children's Literature, and an advanced certificate in technical communication.

Home is Wisconsin where I enjoy exploring  the Lake Michigan shoreline and spending quiet time in the northwoods. I'm passionate about flower gardening, protecting wildlife, and also providing support to cancer patients.  I'm eight years cancer free, and praising God for His goodness and mercy.
