I am a Christ-follower, a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a teacher and a writer (in that order). I am a graduate of the University of Calgary, where I earned my Bachelor of Education degree in 1981, and I spent over thirty years teaching children in private and public school settings, as well as volunteering in the children, youth and adult education ministries at my church. In 2007, I earned a Masters of Religious Education degree from the Canadian Southern Baptist Seminary, in Cochrane, AB. My debut novel, Shoot the Wounded , written for teens and young adults, was published in November 2009, and it was one of the Finalists in the 2010 Readers Favorite Book Awards! The second book in the “Wounded Trilogy“, Heal the Wounded was released on Oct. 18, 2010 and it won the Bronze Medal in the Young Adult – Coming of Age category in the 2011 Readers Favorite Book Awards! The dramatic conclusion to the trilogy, Love the Wounded, released in May 2012 was awarded an International Literary Classics “Seal of Approval” for excellence in Children’s and Young Adult Literature. It also won the Silver medal in the Literary Classics Book Awards for faith-based fiction. It is available for purchase on Amazon or can be purchased from me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My blog, “Journey Thoughts” is the 2011 Winner of a Canadian Christian Writing Award in the blog series category. My blog is slightly quirky, sometimes off-beat, but hopefully inspirational to all my readers. I write about my daily journey walk with the Father. Sometimes I skip pleasantly alongside God, enjoying sweet conversation with Him, other times, I tend to run ahead, following my own direction. That’s when I become weary and discouraged. I write about that, too. Other times, I lag behind him and that’s when I need encouragement from the faithful to push me forward. However, my walk with the Father is always a great adventure and I hope my readers will join me on the journey!
Blessings to you all!
