I love the written word, and not just any old word. It’s the effect created when the right words in the right order flow off the page and into my imagination forever. This love affair with language blossomed and grew during my high school years, as each successive English teacher introduced me to the elegance inherent in the works of Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters.
I fell in love with the desert Southwest when my husband and I first visited southern Nevada in 2006; the attraction only deepened during a subsequent trip. The beauty and serenity of the barren desert landscape resonates with me in an intensely spiritual way, and I hope to convey the essence of that spirituality in my work.
Writing fuels my life, and I would like the opportunity to share my passion with you.
