As a Minnesota native, I am excited to report that I now  wear flip-flops most days as a resident of Florida’s Space Coast. As a career, I worked in the field of community journalism for 18 years, logging more than 1,500 articles published in newspapers, magazines and specialty publications. In 2014, with news of my father’s cancer diagnosis, I moved to Florida, and that’s when I turned in my reporter’s notebook to more seriously pursue the writing of Stories That Inspire. Most recently, I released two cozy romance novels set on the tropical island of Mimosa Key: Divine Interruption and Divine Connection. I’m currently working on a series mirrored after my hometown in Minnesota: Sleepy Lake. In 2012, I published a memoir with Chalice Press called Only God Knows Why: A Mother’s Memoir of Death and Rebirth. This was a hard book to write, but so necessary as part of my faith and grief journeys. The book is about our daughter, Isabelle, who stopped breathing at daycare in 2007 when she was 4 months old and died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). In 2017, I released the audiobook and a Reader’s Guide that features discussion questions, verses and coloring pages. *Perfect* for book clubs and church groups. Our second child, Wyatt, was born in 2008, and has been an absolute blessing. He reminds me over and over again what it means to have faith like little children.   When I’m not writing, I enjoy reading, watching Hallmark Channel movies, gardening, crafting, and treasure hunting on the beach. No matter how busy life becomes, I am always searching for more ways to help parents in their grief journeys. I list resources for parents on this site and share our story of loss here. I also share memorial ideas on my blog: Remember Our Loved Ones Contact me by sending an email to I’d love to hear from you!
