AUTHOR & ARTIST
Here's a little about me. I asked Jesus into my heart at the age of ten and I have gladly lived for Him ever since. I married my husband Ron in 1979. We live in Angelica, New York. God has blessed us with five children, all of whom I home-schooled through the third grade. It was during this very busy time in my life that I found solitude in drawing and painting. I also began to understand and appreciate the benefits of having creative outlets. This is why many of my blogs have to do with creativity.
I enjoy a number of creative activities including drawing, painting, quilting, gardening, woodworking, and interior design. About seven years ago, I added writing to the list and started blogging. More recently, I spend my days writing mystery novels. My debut novel, THE PAINTER, released April, 2019. My Second novel, THE PHOTOGRAPHER, released November, 2019. My newest novel, COVENANT IN STONE, released December, 2020
I like being outside so much that I built myself a tree house where I can write without distraction. See photos below.
Ron and I have been on the Leadership Team at the Gospel Fellowship Church in Belmont, NY for over thirty-five years where we both have the opportunity to preach and share our passion for Jesus.

I love the individuality of each one. Their personalities are evident in this photo!
My favorite place to write
I thought it would be fun to add a few pictures from my treehouse because it gives you a glimpse of who I am. I didn’t like to read when I was younger because I was too active and loved being outdoors. Now I have a way to enjoy nature while being productive. It’s a great space to write and paint.
