I am an author, writer, and blogger. In addition to anthologies and my book, Beyond Bethlehem and Calvary: 12 Dramas for Christmas, Easter, and More!, my work appears in 40+ publications for children, youth, families, and seniors. These include Clubhouse, Pockets, devozine, ENCOUNTER, Open Windows, The Upper Room, Country Extra, ParentLife, Missions Mosaic, and The Christian Communicator. I also write radio drama and Bible studies for Christ to the World Ministries.
Devotions, drama, practical living, lessons from life, poetry, and more find a home in my portfolio. My Published Work and Books pages provide further details. I belong to American Christian Writers and the Kentucky State Poetry Society.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology, with a religious education minor, and a Master of Public Service in counseling. However, I learned my greatest lessons from a large extended family, biological and chosen, and my years as a social worker and adjunct professor.
Although we call Central Kentucky home, my husband and I love to pack our bags and explore the rest of the world as often as possible. One of our greatest joys is serving as a friendship family to international university students.
I have served on several mission teams in the United States and abroad. Most Sunday mornings find me teaching an amazing group of middle school girls and singing in the choir. My Faith Journey offers more information about my beliefs.
During bits of free time, I like to walk, read, and listen to the sounds of nature.
