When I first sat down to write FAMILY TREES, I could picture the setting perfectly. The novel would take place in Bayfield, Wisconsin, on Lake Superior’s south shore – a place that felt like a second home to me after spending countless family gatherings there since early childhood.

As I continued to write, the setting always remained the same, but the storyline unfolded in ways I hadn’t imagined on that first writing day.

I live in Minnesota with my husband and our three children, whom we adore. When we aren't scrambling with work, school, and errands, we can often be found up north, braving ice cold swims, fish boils, and bear scares on Lake Superior’s shore.

I am a proud member of The Tall Poppy Writers, Women's Fiction Writers Association, The Loft Literary Center, and Romance Writers of America.   

I hope you will enjoy reading these stories of love, family, and heart wrenching loyalty as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Ryan peered out once more toward the lake. It was in that moment that a spark of inspiration, as strong as the one he felt when he saw Shelby sitting on the rocks so many months ago, came to him. He could make it right again.
