Hi there! I'm a freelance writer, an avid reader, and the author of Evenfall, my debut novel. I grew up devouring books by Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Mary Stewart and Susan Cooper, and now take great pleasure in sharing those same books with my children - and discovering their favorites as well. To learn more about me, feel free to check out my web page. (And don't forget -- if you've read Evenfall send me an e-mail, preferably with a picture of you and the book, and I'll send you back the secret code to unlock a hidden page on my website!)

My Review Policy
When I find a book I love, I'll happily share the news here. Books that aren't my cup of tea I'll keep to myself. It's called Good Reads for a reason, right?

It’s summer.


My car, with which during the school year I drive the highway so often I could do it in my sleep, stays in the garage. I take long walks instead. Occasionally with my husband, less often with one of my children, even more rarely with the whole family.  We’re at the stage in life where there are games for the kids to play and friends to connect with and social media cal...

Wallace Stegner
“Most things break, including hearts. The lessons of life amount not to
wisdom, but to scar tissue and callus.”
Wallace Stegner, The Spectator Bird

MaryElizabeth Williams
“If we forever treat people like the person they were at their lowest, most despicable moments, how can we expect them not to believe that's who they are, and behave accordingly?”
Mary Elizabeth Williams

Dave Barry
“I like the relaxed way in which the Japanese approach religion. I think of myself as basically a moral person, but I'm definitely not religious, and I'm very tired of the preachiness and obsession with other people's behavior characteristic of many religious people in the United States. As far as I could tell, there's nothing preachy about Buddhism. I was in a lot of temples, and I still don't know what Buddhists believe, except that at one point Kunio said 'If you do bad things, you will be reborn as an ox.'

This makes as much sense to me as anything I ever heard from, for example, the Reverend Pat Robertson.”
Dave Barry, Dave Barry Does Japan

Aaron Sorkin
“I'm a registered Republican, I only seem liberal because I believe that hurricanes are caused by high barometric pressure and not gay marriage.”
Aaron Sorkin

Mary  Stewart
“Every life has death and every light has shadow. Be content to stand in the light and let the shadow fall where it will.”
Mary Stewart, The Hollow Hills
