I am a best-selling author, speaker, and history geek. I love to write about ordinary women who did extraordinary things in days gone by.

This is my personal website. It is focused on historical and good, clean fiction, but I occasionally write about other topics.

My goal is to provide interesting and thought-provoking content. I typically post 2 to 3 times per week. Feel free to comment!

A volunteer docent and archivist with the Wright Museum of WWII, I am also a lecturer with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute through Granite State College. I was born a stone's throw from Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland and have lived in historic places all my life.

Now located in central New Hampshire, my favorite activities include exploring historic sites and immersing myself in the imaginary worlds created by other authors. 

I am available to make presentations to churches, museums, libraries, historic societies, and other organizations. Visit the Speaking Info tab for more information. Available topics include Life on the (WWII) Home Front, Bringing in the Sheaves: The Women's Land Army, More than Rosie the Riveter, Women in the (WWII) Workforce, The Writer’s Life, God in the Workplace, The Proverbs 31 Gal: The Woman We Love to Hate, and Ruth: Lessons from a Foreigner.

I am part of a group blog, Heroes, Heroines, & History. I hope you'll check it out.
