I’ve published two devotional books (one for tween girls and the other for work-from-home moms), but mainly focus on writing fiction these days. I’ve bumped around between several genres during the past few years as I learned (romantic suspense, contemporary, women’s fiction, historical romance – you name it, I probably have a partially written manuscript for it). Then in 2010 I felt God nudging me back to the group I first began writing fiction for: kids.
It’s been a wild ride ever since! Now I spend my days writing and editing projects for the corporate world and my nights or in-between times writing for upper elementary and middle school kids. I’ve gotten encouraging feedback on some projects, have joined a critique group that focuses on stories for middle grade readers, and have more ideas in my head than I know what to do with. Check out my In the Works page to read a bit about my current projects.
And, while you’re here, you can also …
- Read book reviews and other news at my main blog here
- Read about my books
- Have fun with a few puzzles and games related to my projects
- Learn about some wonderful writing groups that constantly help me grow
- Browse my topics if you might need a speaker for a meeting or conference workshop. No group is too large or too small — I have fun with them all, whether it’s a classroom full of school kids, women’s or girls’ groups, or fellow writers who actually “get” me. Details about many of my programs are here on the website, but I’m also happy to plan a class specifically for your group.
I also have a new blog for kids that focuses on writing and book reviews. Hop over to Writing Stars if you’re interested in books for upper elementary and middle school kids, or send a send a teacher or librarian to visit.
Until next time — may you find God’s beauty everywhere you go and learn to share it with others.
