My passion and a common theme in my writing is my Icelandic heritage. I started with children's books and folklore, and enjoy adding a little taste of Iceland in my contemporary novels. My newest book is a motivational work called On with the Butter! Spread More Living onto Everyday Life

It's an inspirational and motivational journey that shows it's never too late to try something new and you're never too old to have fun! Release Date: February 29, 2020. Preorders will be taken in January 2020.

I'm still working on the series of Women's Fiction "Life's a Rodeo". Book 1, "Crossfire" is in final editing and Book 2 "Full Go Round" is moving right along! The series is planned as four books - each one about s the modern-day friendships and relationships of four women in Denver. A spontaneous dating challenge between friends leads to a world of cowboys and new experiences, leading each woman to face her true fears and desires. I expect the first one to be available Fall 2020.

Read slowly and savor.

This is an entertaining book with an engaging storyline but filled with deeper meaning and observations about life. I thoroughly enjoyed it, stopping at time to re-read or highlight passages. I highly recommend.
