I am a married mother of three, who's grown up and still lives in Wisconsin. It's my dream to eventually give up the day job and work full-time as a writer. I love to write just about anything, fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, horror, romance, drama, even comedy. I've written short stories, personal essays, poems and novels.

I was co-author of a novel titled "Where Do I Begin - One Woman's Story" that was written in just one month by 32 authors as a fund raiser to buy books for needy children. My novel Souljourner and novelettes "Finding Hope" and "Finding Life" as well as my holiday novella "Christmas Carole" are available on amazon.com and barnesandnoble ...more

I absolutely loved this book and could not put it down! I've been a long-time fan of Stephen King, and as it turns out, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Joe Hill can stand proudly, on his own merit, next to his famous father.

This book was recommended to me by a friend after I saw the movie. I thought the book (as it usually is) would be better than the movie. This is one of those rare times when it turned out the opposite was true. If you have read this book - see the mo ...more
