Although I’ve been married for 14 years and have 4 kids, I would never say I have ‘settled down’ into the married/family life. Anyone with kids would agree, I’m sure! Busy as a homeschooling mom with kids ranging from 1 1/2 to 12, there are diapers to change, school work to check, and places to go. I don’t like to cook because I can’t read or write while I stir/chop/saute/brown meat, therefore we eat scrambled eggs, fruit and protein shakes often. No one is starving here, though, trust me :)
These are my Kidlets! Three born of my womb and one born of my heart!
I have two books published; the beginning of what I hope will be a long and fruitful writing career:
Gateways – Young Adult Fantasy with light Christian undertones.
Back Cover Blurb:
Victoria suffers the normal troubles of every teenager: homework deadlines, a protective mother who keeps knives under her pillow, a missing father, and if she’s not careful, Victoria falls into her paintings. OK, so, not so normal problems. The paintings that lead to other realities are Gateways, and all is not well in the worlds outside our own. A shift in power is brewing as a search for an ancient weapon, the same weapon Victoria’s father swore to protect, forces her to choose between remaining under the protection of her mentor or going on her own to find her father. If the weapon falls into the wrong hands, every world will suffer (insert evil laugh here).
Unforgettable Roads – Straight-up fiction.
Back Cover Blurb:
Jack Elliott has Alzheimer’s . To preserve his mind, he has written his life’s story: the lessons, the gains and the losses he has lived through, in hopes that as his granddaughter, Alison, comes of age, she will not make the same mistakes he did. For her birthday, Jack takes Alison on a journey to the places in the West where he found his independence in life, his dependence on God, and fell in love for the first time.
When Jack’s journals are stolen, Alison realizes that nothing will protect her grandfather from the evils of Alzheimer’s. Victims of a hit-and-run, Jack is seriously injured. Desperate to find a piece of his past to bring to him, Alison continues the journey, searching for answers, seeking the people and places her grandfather once knew. As Alison follows the stories she grew up on, she realizes that she’s looking for Jack’s first love…and it’s not her grandmother. Will this woman be enough? Will she be the ‘kiss’ that wakes him up?
