I’m an author that loves history and the Lord Jesus Christ,
my Saviour. Not too unusual for a Christian writer. However, what is unique is
that I grew up on a farm near Arrowwood, Alberta, Canada and now live in
California with my husband and three kids—not in New York, Los
Angeles, San Francisco, or any other major North American city.
My own history as a Christian began as a child attending
Vacation Bible School at the Arrowwood Gospel Mission. One of the take home
papers asked when the reader was saved. I couldn’t give an answer. I knew that
I believed in Jesus, but I didn’t know for sure if I was going to Heaven when I
die. The next day I couldn’t wait until VBS was over so I could talk with the
teacher, Linda Brown, about how to be saved. After repenting and calling on the
name of the Lord Jesus Christ for my salvation, I became a new creature and began
a new journey through life.
Today I attend Calvary Baptist Church in American Canyon, CA
where I fellowship with some of the most wonderful people I’ve ever known.
Because of my love for the Lord, I try my best to glorify
Him in my writing. I desire, through my work, to show Christ to those who do
not know Him as their personal Saviour and to encourage and exhort those who
Though I loved writing short stories as a child and through
my youth, writing didn’t take a prominent place in my life until many years
later when I started writing about horses and horse husbandry for magazines and
books. That became the catalyst for me to seriously consider writing fiction .
. . but not just any fiction—fiction that would present Biblical
truths through story. This led to me publishing Best of Faith, Fiction, Fun, and Fanciful,
and writing more novels, including Joab’s
Fire which will be released in June 2011.
I blog at Faith, Fiction, Fun, and
Fanciful about writing and my faith. I also share some short stories on the
blog for Fiction
Friday. As a further ministry, I do Autograph
Tea Parties for ladies groups where I read something I have written and
give my salvation testimony.

I hope you join me here and on Faith, Fiction, Fun, and
Fanciful to explore this journey of life.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
