I fell in love with the desert Southwest when my husband and I first visited southern Nevada in 2006; the attraction only deepened during subsequent trips. The beauty and serenity of the barren desert landscape resonate with me in an intensely spiritual way, and I hope to convey the essence of that spirituality in my work.

As a children’s book author, I enjoy introducing very young children to the world of animals. Working with animals deepens my connection to the natural world and honors the lives of the pets my husband and I have welcomed into our home for over 30 years.
