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 rescue pets my husband and I have welcomed into our home for over 30 years.
