About Me

I’ve loved words ever since I read 103 books in Miss Vopelensky’s first-grade class. That’s when I first dreamed of becoming a writer. My dream came true many years later when my first book was published at the age of forty.

Now after more than a decade away from publishing I’m thrilled to be back and writing again!

I’m delighted that at long last, my memoir, Good Girl, the book of my soul, releases in June 2022. This is the best, most transparent, and vulnerable book I’ve ever written. I also had a trio of fun cozy mysteries release during the pandemic: Murder Most Sweet (A Bookish Baker Mystery) which I’m delighted to say was nominated for an Agatha Award, Hope, Faith, & a Corpse (A Faith Chapel Mystery) and Deadly Delights, my second Bookish Baker Mystery. I’m currently working on some historical fiction.

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?"
