Peter the Turtle Can't Poop front cover

Brainstorming with my then six-year-old grandson, we devised the plot for Peter the Turtle. The poop part was his idea, I swear!

On his adventure, Peter discovers treasures on the beach. Little does he know how harmful litter is to a turtle. Alone on his journey, he gets stuck on the shore and has tummy troubles. Who will come to his rescue? Will he be able to poop?

While laughing, children will learn the importance of friendship, healthy eating, and putting litter in a bin.

Humili8ing Short & Sweet cover

Short and Sweet: Humili8ing

My most humiliating and therefore, most embarrassing moment, was chosen to be published in this book (purchase here). It involves waxing my legs.

Featuring 43 funny, yet traumatic short stories, it is a work of love with all proceeds benefiting World Christian Broadcasting.

This book is extra special to me. I offered to design the cover and was honored to have it chosen for print by Editor, Susan Cheeves King. The challenge was to showcase “8” since it’s the eighth book in the series.

Bess Streeter 2nd place

I’m grateful to have won 2nd place in the 2019 Bess Streeter Aldrich Short Story Contest

My husband and I attended the annual reception in Elmwood, Nebraska. The lovely home, turned museum, is certainly a delightful tribute to one of Nebraska’s finest writers, Bess Streeter Aldrich.

Rock Bottom Has a Basement

My work in progress is a story of a people-pleasing woman and a man she loved. When his life tanked, her heart wanted to drag him from rock bottom. She gave, he took, repeat. Instead of rescuing him from the trenches of despair, he sucked her into his hell, and she got burnt. I’m talking the third-degree kind.

Putting a comical spin on ridiculous behavior was my first intention. The more I wrote, the more I understood these actions weren’t funny. Writing became therapy, a salve to coat the wounds of dysfunction. Alcoholism is not a laughing matter; it is a monster that robs joy, saps all that is good, and drains love and hope from the depths of best intentions. I learned the alcoholic can only slay the monster when he is ready. Some never are.

A work in progress, the book refuses to be rushed. The story will be told in its own time, in the order it comes. Some chapters bring a smile to my heart and are easy to write. Some are horrendous and difficult to attempt. So goes the journey.
