Cofounder of the original Iowa Scribes, which I chaired for twelve years until my move to KS. Also served on the executive board of the Northwest Christian Writers Association.
I call myself an ambidextrous writer since I write both fiction and nonfiction, for adults and children. My work has been published in The Writer, the Chicken Soup series, and various news outlets. After working as a writer for 15 years, I decided to make it official and went back to college. I recently completed my dual degree in journalism and English with honors & high distinction, and completed my MA in English at the University of Iowa where I soaked up everything literary in the City of Literature and sat in the shadow of Pulitzer writers like Marilynne Robinson, James Alan McPherson, Stephen Barry, et al.
Writer, wife, mother, ventriloquist. Yep.
