I gain inspiration for my writing from the beautiful setting of the Pacific Northwest. I am a lover of words and people, and these passions have led to my previous work as a freelance writer and editor and as a certified sign language interpreter. Unfortunately my health has deteriorated to the point of not allowing me to do much, but I try to stay up to date in the writing and interpreting communities.
I have found FaithWriters to be a wonderful community. I was a coordinator and speaker for the writing conference and a moderator on the adult message boards. Now I serve as mod on the children's message boards. I also am the founder and director of Peculiar People--an international organization that creates unique fiction through group writing projects. Check PeP out at www.peculiarpeoplebooks.com.
I've had numerous short stories and articles published in many genres, and had publishers interested in my two partially-written novels. One of my passions is helping new writers through the publishing process, and I have a lot of experience navigating the self publishing process.

I am learning to live life fully and joyfully despite a debilitating genetic condition. Thanks for taking some time to look around! God bless.
