Writing has always been my passion. After writing picture books for my children and mysteries for friends with teenagers, I finally found what I love writing the most—suspense books. As an avid reader, I felt the transition from reading to writing was a wonderful new experience, and I absolutely love the joy of pleasing others with words.

Living on a dairy farm, my husband and I raised three wonderful children. I feel so blessed to be able to write books and paint portraits at my home in the country, and I welcome the opportunity to help others find a close relationship with God. I strive to use those opportunities to honor Him and please Him with the talents He has given me.

I think it's because they were at the brink of destruction in their marriage, and yet Caleb stuck it out and worked hard to win his wife's love again. And Catherine had many reasons to take the easy route with a divorce, but she dug deep in her heart and found forgiveness for Caleb's selfishness and adulterous heart. They were "real" and believable, and I loved the movie because of the growth in their characters.(less)

“It's one thing to affirm that God is free to do as God wills in this
world. The real crunch comes in allowing God the freedom and
trust to act in one's own life. John Indermark”
Lynelle Clark

“I have learned silence from the talkative,
tolerance from the intolerant
and kindness from the unkind.
I should not be ungrateful to those teachers.
~Kahlil Gibran~”
