     I share my deepest thoughts  and experiences through Christian based free verse poetry and non-fictional prose to comfort others who struggle with the loss of a child or loved one, or with life itself.

     I'm a native Kansan who advocates for both people and animals in need, and have served on a variety of boards as I continue to raise funds for my causes.

     With a BA in English and Sociology from Pittsburg State University, I was blessed to receive state and national awards as my career path moved forward - for human interest stories within the cooperative movement, and with poetry in publications that include Home Life and Western Horseman.

     A mid life career change to crisis services was made before pursuing writing full time again, and I'm currently working on a second book that reflects my small town upbringing and the people I've met along the way.
