My God-given mission is to
offer hope, encouragement, information, and enjoyment through my writing speaking, and teaching, by sharing how the Lord is transforming my life through my travels, trials, and other life experiences.

I am a retired single woman living in Boulder, Colorado. At home I live by, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15). I share my house with Lady, an elderly beagle, and Dolphin, a young cat who is sure he is actually a saber-tooth tiger.
Retired after more than a quarter-century of teaching special needs children in the public school system, I continue to tutor as well as volunteering in a Christian school, helping several Chinese college students with their English, and editing papers for friends.
A free-lance writer, I have completed the Apprentice and Journeyman courses of the Christian Writers Guild and continue to hone my craft at writing conferences such as Oregon Christian Writers Summer Conference, Colorado Christian Writers, and Writing for the Soul. I am a member of Write from the Heart, a critique group.
When the roads are clear and I’m not writing or teaching, I travel around North America in a 30-foot Winnebago. My trips range from local weekend jaunts to one- to two-month loops quartering the country. I generally go alone, with Lady and Dolphin for companions. In addition, I occasionally vacation with friends, either sharing my RV or wagon-training (each of us in our own rig).
I have been traveling in a recreational vehicle much of my life. My parents had a towed trailer when I was a child, and I have owned both Class C and Class A self-contained vehicles. I carefully structure my trips, using books and the internet to research and plan my travels across the continent. Then I happily diverge from my itinerary when I spot something interesting along the way.
