I started writing stories as a teenager and continue to spin tales for my children and grandchildren today. I hope to encourage them to see their life and the world around them with eyes of imagination and God’s love.
Traveling throughout our county and around the world, I have spoken and taught in schools, libraries and churches. I have visited orphanages, leper colonies, and garbage dump communities. I have taught and worshiped with the persecuted Christians of the under-ground church.
These trips not only give me opportunities to meet people, but to experience lifetime adventures. Pulling stories from the strong in spirit from all walks of life, I hope to teach others, young and old, that life is not about circumstances, but what we do with what we have.
My writing developed from college through technical instructions and training materials for various manufacturing industries. For several churches and mission teams I have written lessons, devotionals and children’s messages. A collection of stories were compiled into book form and published in 1996. In 2003 two books highlighting experiences in Haiti and Uganda were published. Most recently, the first book in the dragon Bible series was released— fall of 2010. Currently I am working on contracts for the continuation of this series as well as starting another.
Over the years I have received several awards for various poems and short stories. I have been commissioned to write “memory books” and conduct workshops to teach children how to write stories.
My international travel experience include the countries of the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Japan, Viet Nam, Philippines, Korea, London England, Uganda Africa, Mexico and Canada.
I have worked with Girl Scouts, Habitat for Humanity, Christian Appalachian Project, Fort Wayne Inner City Mission, Global Ministries, Youth for Christ, Calvary International Discovery Missions, Casas Por Cristo, Canaan Christian Camp of Salcedo Dominican Republic, Ebenezer Evangelical Missions & Nehemiah Vision Ministries of Haiti.
