the author
I’m a self-published author who writes sweet books, meaning they are clean books. My books fall into several genres. Try reading one of my books. I hope you’ll see they’re great stories for all ages.

I’m always thinking of new stories in different genres. On my to-write list are several sweet western fiction/historical fiction novels and a series concerning the Queendom of Collaree.

I enjoy self-publishing my books because of the freedom it offers. With traditional publishing, an author must continue to write the same genre. I don’t like being boxed in and want to write whatever genre I want to write. For now, you won’t find my books in a book store, but you can find my them on Amazon, Kindle, and Audible.

Thoughts on More Snow

It’s been an unusual week. Boise is reeling under the effects of Jupiter, the storm, that dumped more snow here than they’ve had in many decades. We had snow for 5 days, then rain

Thoughts on Snow

We are buried in snow. Not snow depths of Colorado, Montana, or Yellowstone, but for here in Boise, we’ve got about a foot on the ground, more snow than in more than 30 years.

Thoughts on the New Year

Can you believe that it’s 2017? Ready or not, it’s here. Beginning a new year, we have hopes and expectations for the year. We hope it will be a good one for us. For

Thoughts on Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope all of you are enjoying a wonderful holiday with family and friends. That’s what I’m doing. I hope this season of love and merriment is a long, safe, and healthy

Thoughts on Losing a Friend

I was stunned when I found out a former co-worker had died of cancer this past week. I didn’t know he was sick, but he was a private person so it’s not surprising that

Thoughts on Seeing Heroes

I saw a post on Facebook last week about a student that taught his teacher how to be a better teacher. That post triggered a memory. I remembered a newspaper clipping I have tucked

Thoughts on Grandsons

I hope you all had a special Thanksgiving holiday and made it home safely again. We had an exciting trip up and over the Blue Mountains and down the Columbia River gorge. A lovely
