I am so glad you found me here!  I’ve wanted a website for a long time, and now it is happening!  Hooray!  Please keep checking back for additions.  Like anything, it might take a while to get it just right.

The photos flashing on the big screen are me in my office with some of my books. . .and our family golden-doodle, KOKI.  

We also have two horses.  The pony in the picture below is Snowy.  He is a gem.  We also have an Arabian bay gelding named Sir William.  I love to jump little courses with him.  He has been a part of our family for a long time, and brings me much joy. 

My family (my husband John, and our four boys, Edwin, Aaron, Benjamin, and Jameson) live in Minnesota and Evergreen, CO.  We love the mountains of CO, but enjoy the lakes and summers in Minnesota.  We love to ski, bike, water-ski, skate, hike, read, play with Playmobil toys, and watch THE LORD OF THE RINGS movies, and the BBC series, MERLIN.  

I love, love, love to visit schools and libraries and talk about the joy of reading and writing, and the power of imagination.  Please click here to find out more about my visits, or here to send me a message.
