    I write cross-cultural contemporary and historical fiction about faith that overcomes and grace that restores. My nonfiction writings and poetry have been featured in the The Mennonite, Rod and Staff Publishers' The Christian Pathway, and several literary magazines and anthologies. In 2015, I co-authored 5 Editors Tackle the 12 Fatal Flaws of Fiction Writing and contributed to Not Alone: A Literary and Spiritual Companion for Those Facing Infertility & Miscarriage. I edit and proofread for CBA publishing houses as well as offer freelance editing through Avodah Editorial Services.

    Obsession with words aside, I'm also a wife and the mom of a 9-year-old girl, a 7-year-old boy, an 80-lb black lab who thinks she's a lap dog, and an ever-changing number of amphibians (yes, really). I consider dark chocolate a food group (level on the pyramid all depends on the day!). I love to laugh. And I'm thankful. When I'm not reading, writing, editing, at acro/ gymnastics or swimming practice, or involved with family and church activities, you can find me trolling yard sales and thrift stores. I live in the same Pennsylvania town where I grew up.
