about me

A professional Christian writer for 25 years, I write poetry, essays, articles and books.

I have a BA in Political Philosophy, a degree in Journalism Arts and several theology and writing courses. I’m a former journalist, writing instructor and homeschooling mom of two great children. Today I write from my Home Study, pack lunches for my kids and lead hands-on, creative workshops when asked.

The life of faith, family, friendship and the future excite me. The motif of pilgrimage speaks to me. I love to read out loud, spend time outdoors and go barefoot year-round. In many ways I’m living my dream—in some ways I’m not. As a writer, I get to explore all this—and more.
