I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. Growing up I loved being out in nature whatever season, although fall has always been my favorite.
Now residing in Connecticut, I enjoy being with my husband,our sons and their families. Hiking and exploring are still favorite activities, including snowshoeing.
Having a strong faith, God is in all aspects of my life so it is natural that He shows up in my writing as well.
Who are your favorite authors?
I am a huge Clive Cussler fan. I prefer his older works as opposed to his collaboration with other authors. Earlene Fowler writes a good mystery mixed with quilting jargon and cowgirl gumption. Recently I have enjoyed steampunk novels by Shelley Adina with, you guessed it, a strong female character.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Bible because it has everything I need, wrapped in adventure, history, heroes, comfort, and life. The Blue Sword by Anne McCaffrey. It is a great mix of historical fiction and fantasy. Gifts From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Her reflections on life touched me deeply. I have owned several copies but I end up giving them away to people that seem to need comfort and inspiration. Inca Gold by Clive Cussler. It was what got me hooked on mysteries and adventure stories.
