About Me & My Family

If you want to know more about me, you’d have to meet my family–because I’m all about my family.

I have 3 beautiful daughters.

Summer is in college at the University of St. Thomas. She is studying Art History and General History. I think she must have picked up my love of art and history from all the times I dragged my kids to museums throughout their childhood.

Samantha loves science and sculpture. She’s super logical. She is about to start college in the fall. She has also won awards for the duck decoys she carves,

Emily is brilliant. She’s the only daughter I will be homeschooling next year since her sisters have moved on to the college years. She plays the piano and loves art. Are you noticing a trend? All of my daughters love art in some shape or form!

I have an amazing husband.

Dan has been a Realtor for 2 decades. Now, we work together as a team to sell Real Estate. He has also been a pastor. Doctors diagnosed him with stage IV lung cancer in 2012. He is a walking miracle!

My family loves to travel.

Every year we take at least one trip as a family and Dan and I take at least one trip as a couple. On these trips, we often camp (in a rented cabin). We visit museums and historical places. If there’s a plaque, we read it.

While we all like writing (and do it well), I write the most!

I write fiction. It’s not published yet, but I am working on a mystery novel.

I write non-fiction
