Escape into Meaningful Romance

Just how good is grace?

What does it mean to right our wrongs?

How can we trust people, even as we live in a broken world?

I love to explore questions like these through romance, because relationships seem to bring to the surface any lies we believe about ourselves and our standing before God.

Besides, who doesn’t love to escape into a good love story?!

If you’ve read a few of my stories, you may have noticed I usually set my stories in some fictionalized area of Wisconsin, where I live with my husband and our coonhound rescue dog.

I’m a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. During my time with hope*writers, I had the honor of interviewing novelists I respect such as Francine Rivers, Susan Meissner, and Steven James. My non-fiction has appeared on, in Southern Writer’s Magazine, and Seriously Write.

I’d love to connect online (links below!).

Stayed up way too late reading, and woke up way too early to read some more.
