I'm so glad you stopped by. You'll find information about my books, a bit about me, and a list of upcoming events. Please sign up for my email list and get the latest news. There's a contact page, too. Be sure to get in touch if you have questions. I love to hear from readers! 


My newest book is a middle-grade novel, Storm Warning, that takes place during the  1997 flood in the Red River Valley of the North. It's an exciting adventure, which I hope you'll enjoy.


Exploring history and biography is fun. When I begin researching, I ask myself questions about a particular person or event. My goal is to find the answers and share them with readers like you. Sometimes the result is a nonfiction book. Sometimes it's a novel. I like to think of my books as time-travel adventures that let you visit the past! 


A recent series, Choose Your Journey, takes young readers to the First Century where they'll encounter people of the Bible. Imagine yourself living 2,000 years ago in the Middle East. What an adventure, especially when you have to make choices as you read.


I've also had fun researching and writing about animals, other countries, weather, and so much more. Books take you places you've never been. They introduce to new ideas. I hope you find as much pleasure in reading and writing as I do!



"The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story."                                                —Ursula K. Le Guin
