My mom was an Irish storyteller ...

... and I grew up listening to her stories about growing up in the Ozarks (sometimes just a wee bit embellished) and found myself holding my breath, waiting for the mountaintop moment. It always came.


I think I inherited the storytelling gene but with ink and paper. Books are my first language and I live and breathe words and stories. I started out writing in the newspaper business with a tough old one-legged cigar-smoking editor who pounded out stories on an Underwood typewriter.


I graduated to freelance articles, then books. I've written 14 and I feel like I'm just getting started! I love reading and writing stories about unforgettable people who are living lives of adventure, courage, hope, redemption, and transformation. 


Writing is the ultimate adventure. Books are alive and when you start, you're in for a ride because you're never quite sure where you're going to end up. Ready to start a little adventure?
