About me

I recently released my first historical fiction novel, UNDER THE ALMOND TREES. It is a fictionalized account of three women, who happen to be related to me, who lived in early California–1850-1900. They fought to vote, pursue a man’s career, and make their own choices on raising a family. Inspired by them, I shook the branches of the family tree a bit harder and found more strong women to write about! Stay tuned…

I also have three historical fantasies and an ebook novella in my flying horse series set in Medieval Wales. In my ‘spare’ time I am a sixth grade teacher.
