    I write historical fiction of the Pacific Northwest despite disliking traditional history. My goal is to entertain through a focus on real characters and events of the past. The characters must be relatable since I will "live" with them for two years while I research and write the book. Stories often include interactions between whites and Native Americans as required by the time period and setting.

    Although I grew up in the Spokane area of Washington state and taught there for most of my career, I also taught for many years in Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula and one year in Hawaii. I currently live on Whidbey Island with my husband. Our adult children and grandbaby live nearby.

    I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, yoga, Musselfest in March, the Water Festival in May, the Highland Games in Mount Vernon and most of all, my family.
