Wanting to learn more about the writing craft, I studied creative writing under Meredith Nixon in 2006. Three years later, I took a 2-year Apprentice Fiction course, at Christian Writers Guild with Sandra Byrd as my mentor (I highly recommend her as a writing coach). In 2014, I enrolled in the Journeyman Fiction course under the tutelage of Deborah Christensen.
Since then I have published articles in local newspapers, written articles for some awesome websites, worked with the Inspired Prompt crew, and published my memoir. If you’re interested to read more of my work, click on the links below.

I was impressed by your writing style and by your interview of a friend, Gail Kittleson. It was her writing of historical Christian fiction which inspired me to write historical Christian fiction. My first one, A Safe Haven for Beth will be released in April.
I have enjoyed Gail’s books very much.
It’s so nice to meet you. Thank you for your lovely compliment. Congratulations on your book. “A Safe Haven for Beth” sounds like a book I would enjoy. Thank you for visiting my blog. Do you have a blog that I could follow back?
