As a kid, I always had my nose in a book. In school, the teacher had to tell me to put my hand down because I wanted to answer every question or ask every question. I’ve been a reporter, an educator, a wife, and a mom. Now I’m a full time writer with nine books published, including a New York Times bestseller called Thunder Dog. My family sometimes gets tired of my obsessions but I’ve turned that hyper focus into a drive to chase big, true stories that I just can’t get enough of.
I live near Lake Tahoe with my husband Robert. We have two adult children. In addition to writing books and articles, I consult for Lightside Games, the world’s largest online Christian videogame company. I'm a member of the Authors Guild, serve on the board of Inspire Christian Writers, and was recently named Director of West Coast Christian Writers Conference (formerly Christian Writers Seminar), an annual writers conference in the San Francisco Bay Area.
