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 Newsletter to 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 latest book, A Kidnapping in Kentucky, 1776, is now available. Hooray! The novel, for kids ages 8-12, is based on the 1776 kidnapping of Jemima Boone, Daniel Boone's daughter, and on the search to bring her and her friends, the Calloway sisters, home to Boonesborough. Here in Tennessee, I'm surrounded by Daniel Boone sites, many of which I'll be visiting in the days and weeks to come.


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! Check them out.



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!


Let's stay in touch.



"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
