I live in Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada with my husband and two young daughters. We’re homeschoolers and entrepreneurs. My husband and I make iOS apps and I write stories. Being a writer is magical - spinning nothing into stories - stories that can light the way to a different world.


I've written a lot of different books. A reader suggested that I list which of my books are for children and which are for adults and teens. Here is that list :)

Easy Chapter Books for Grades 1-4:

Nightcat - Kitty Castle 1
Surprises - Kitty Castle 2
Answers - Kitty Castle 3
Mystery - Kitty Castle 4
Reunion - Kitty Castle 5
Celebrations - Kitty Castle 6 (Contains all 4 holiday stories)
Kitty Castle Valentine’s
Kitty Castle Christmas

It's based on the premise that there are things in this world that are real but not everyone can see them. There's surface reality and then there's everything underneath.

The story's about Cara, who gets paid for dreaming. Wouldn't that be a seriously awesome job? I just love sleeping and always have. I used to wish I could have a job like Cara's. Some of my dreams are pretty unique! Many of Cara's dreams are actual dreams that I had.

Whispers of a Faded Dreamer is an unusual Christian fantasy about how God uses all things for good for those who love him and how God has a plan to prosper us and not to harm us. I've experienced those things in my own life and found God's word is true and his love is everlasting. (less)

"Awesome Story

I loved it . A nice clean love story that is not full of steamy sex scenes. I am going to keep this book. "

This book was very suspenseful and well-written but not what I was expecting. I was thinking by the title that maybe it was a thriller or horror. In a way it was but it was also something else.

I identified with the characters and cared about them.

“Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't "try" to do things. You simply "must" do things.”
Ray Bradbury
