Biography

I am a full time wife and homemaker. I have a passion for children, my husband, cooking, reading, writing, and most importantly, Jesus. I have been writing since I was a small child, everything from poetry to stories. I have always loved telling stories, true or imagined. I love that I can now share those stories with the world!

Writing is my therapy, and escaping into the fictional town of Hanesworth, Iowa for a few hours is one of my favorite things to do! I hope that you'll join me and grow to love the interesting group of characters that reside in Hanesworth as much as I do!

  • Frizzy Tizzy Goes to the Park on Dec. 29, 2014

    This is a short, sweet children's book that is part of a series of books about a little girl named Tizzy. They call her Frizzy Tizzy because of her frizzy hair. In this particular adventure, she spends the day at the park with her parents and decides to conquer the big slide. However, when she gets to the top she gets frightened and doesn't want to go down. A new friend helps her conquer her fears. This was short and sweet, a perfect read-aloud for very young listeners. My favorite part is probably the illustrations. The family is mixed race and the other children featured are of different races and hair colors. I like that it's just a part of the book, and that the book isn't about that. It's hard to find children's books where diversity is just normal and not the subject. As foster parents, we never who is going to walk in our door. So, we feel it's particularly important for the children in our home to be surrounded by books and toys of all races and cultures. I like that this little story included that without it being the theme.
  • Drifting Fines on May 15, 2015

    I really struggled to get into this one. I always have a hard time with books where the characters are irrevocably, head over heels in love with each other...before barely exchanging a sentence. I guess it bothers me so much because I see people try to do this in real and their relationships usually flounder. I know that they're fictional characters, but I always struggle when they don't behave at all like normal people. In some places it felt like the author was channeling a little bit too much of Fifty Shades with his male lead and some of their interactions. There isn't any sex or BDSM, but with the attitudes, mood shifts, and strange parts of his personality, I got a strong Christian Grey vibe. I'm pretty sure Christian Cervello has a serious mental illness by the way his mind works and is separated. I hope that that's addressed appropriately in the rest of the series. However, by the end I was definitely intrigued enough to want to read more. While the relationship and personalities are hard to digest, I really enjoyed the adventure and mystery aspect. Especially all the meddling from perceived friends and coworkers...though there is some of that, that again doesn't reflect typical human behavior. If you're suspicious of someone, you're going to keep them at arm's length, not go hang out with them and prepare for an event. Just a few little kinks that can be ironed out. Overall, I found it intriguing, interesting, and decently written. A solid three stars. This is a cliff-hanger and not a stand alone.
