After a career in education and writing online courses with video, I'm excited to present my first novel for entertainment, a historical fiction adventure with romance, SHAGOON.
My writing typically includes experiences in the natural environment, having lived most of my life in the woods of Washington state. I've had a passion for writing ever since my first serious boyfriend dumped me at a tender age. Now I indulge in research and the creation of realistic characters to put together bits of history in new ways.
I love spending time with family, especially cooking together, and am interested in warm climates, sandy beaches, large bodies of water, palm trees, and plumeria. I help my husband build houses, practice yoga and enjoy the mussels from Penn Cove where I currently live on Whidbey Island.
Having always admired Native American cultures, when a psychic told me thirty years ago that I had once been an Alaskan Native American twin and I learned that twins had been left in the forest to die in some Native cultures of the past, I felt compelled to investigate. The story of SHAGOON has been building ever since.
My intention is to entertain, inform, and pay tribute to the Tlingit people by creating interest in their culture and character through the love and interaction of family members.
I hope you enjoy! The characters face many of the challenges we still address today. Even a discarded newborn can change the world!
