Reared on a ranch in Idaho. Obtained a J.D. in 1978. Practiced law as an army JAG in the Washington, D.C. area. Lived in Wyoming and am now back on that ranch in Idaho. Who says you can't go home again.

Background Information

I believe that historical fiction should educate as well as entertain.  From my teens and into adulthood I read historical fiction, hoping the backgrounds and historic events were accurate.  I still carry the stories around in my head. 

Having been reared on a ranch close to nature, I delighted in writing about the peasant culture in Brittany in the 17th century with its myths and superstitions, having done in-depth research.  My second novel is about a woman who uses her love of nature and her life in the country for strength.

My legal training has helped me, I hope, to write logically and convey the thread of the story from its beginning to its end without confusion, but also to hold the jury's – I mean reader’s -- attention.

Additional Information

My first novel, The Wolf's Sun, Intrigue in 17th Century France, is available on Amazon Kindle, Nook, Lulu. If you don't have a Kindle, you can download the Kindle application at the book site and read the first few chapters free before you decide whether to pay $2.99 for the novel. It was well-edited by my husband, a former publisher/editor of a university magazine, so I'm confident it reads well. My second novel, A Devil Singing Small, is also on Kindle, with free chapters to read prior to commitment to purchase for $2.99. It is loosely based on my mother's life with my schizophrenic father. When we write about our childhoods, we are often exorcising demons. I wrote this from the wife's perspective, so perhaps I was trying to exorcise my mother's demons. When she read it about 10 years ago, she said, "That's sure your dad, but it's not me." So, maybe I fictionalized it enough. It was about her, though.
