“Lush imagery, relatable characters, and a spot-on balance of humor and heartache come together to create a romance that speaks to the wanderer in us all—and the part of us that wants nothing more than a place to call home.”



 Award-winning author of Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish

About Me


Although I reside in 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 rustic towns, along rivers and between mountains where love is sweet, faith is genuine, and ever afters are happy. I promise you'll always find inspiring characters, moving tales of redemption, and riveting romance.

In addition to writing novels, I teach university courses in Human Development and Family Relations, and I am certified in Family Life Education. This education and experience has led to the production of the Love | Wander | Read Journal, a quarterly digital magazine that provides inspiration for a life well-lived.

Look for my debut novel, This Wandering Heart, to be released by Berkley Publishing May 5, 2020!
