If I am not writing, you might find me working on other creative projects, walking my dogs, or with family and friends soaking in the beauty of nature. I love living in the Northwest, and writing about it!

I've worked in a variety of settings including long term care and education. Highlights of all my jobs have been meeting interesting people and sharing experiences which inform my writing.

Back in 1995, I awoke from a strange winter dream not knowing I was beginning a long journey with story! My first novel, Mending Stone, published in 2011, is based on that strange dream! Updates followed in 2013. The sequel, Catching Rain, book 2 in this Possibility Series, came out in 2014! Seeding Hope, book 3, out in summer 2016!

Their love felt respectful, lasting, unblemished - something I was not sure existed, but wanted to believe in! Now I know love is always a bit messy! But so worth it!

“In every day waits fortune like a seed ready to sprout.”
Sharon Duerst

“Half my life is an act of revision.”
John Irving

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, NIV)”
Anonymous, Study Bible: NIV

“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”
Shawn Slovo, Captain Corelli's Mandolin

“In every day waits fortune like a seed ready to sprout.”
Sharon Duerst

“Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.”
“Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving”
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
