Author of Contemporary Rustic Romance with Enduring Faith
Although I reside in Northwestern Ohio with my husband, four children, and two spoiled Labrador retrievers, I have lived and traveled all over the United States. Since each of these lovely places has stolen a piece of my heart, I write to revisit them. My stories are set in small midwestern towns, throughout historic cities, on white sand beaches, and beside majestic mountain rivers. But no matter the setting, you’ll always find inspiring characters, moving tales of redemption, and riveting romance.
