My greatest joy in life comes from my children, my animals, and the stories swirling through my head.
My family lives on about 10 acres nestled in the woods on the outskirts of the Missouri Ozarks, where we're doing our best to live in a more sustainable way. It's been a difficult and crazy ride at times, but it's a life that brings more joy than we ever could have imagined. In my mind, everyone should know the happiness that comes with sitting in a swing watching your chickens and goats forage while the sun sinks over the treetops.
Raising kids and animals takes up most of my "free" time. I also give talks at schools, churches and women's groups (really anywhere I can) to raise awareness about human trafficking and to help others on their road to publication.
Feel free to drop me a note if you're interested in arranging an appearance, if you have a question, or if you just want to say hi. Meeting my readers has become my favorite part of being a writer!
