About My Work

I started an adventure with creativity on July 1, 2019 as a way of getting back to playing with words and writing for the sake of writing. I write and post reflections on writing, faith, and creativity and also focus on the writing of my novel, The Lost Journal. Join my email list to keep up with all things writing here.


My current work in progress, The Lost Journal, started from a writing prompt about coming across a journal in your grandmother’s attic. This prompt introduced me to three characters with whom I immediately fell in love. They invited me into their story and I obliged.

Writing, Faith, and Creativity

I believe we are all created and called to create. For me, my main gift is writing and I love to tell stories. But I encourage others to heed this sacred call to create, whether it’s a meal, a memory, a sculpture, a knitting project, or an adventure. Creativity uncovers the wonder of the world around us.


I'm posting daily! More fiction coming soon!
