Author Biography

I was born in Whitefish, Montana. My family moved around the Inland Northwest a number of times and I ended up in Moyie Springs, Idaho just before I started eighth grade.

I graduated from Bonners Ferry High School in 1993. After that, I attended the University of Idaho and achieved a B.A. in English with a Creative Writing emphasis.

I was in second grade when I first knew I wanted to be a writer. I attended elementary school in Twin Bridges, Montana at the time.

Our teacher had us write and illustrate our own stories, and I wrote about our family’s White German Shepherd, Missie. The teacher filed the stories away in the school office and promised to return them when we graduated.

I was excited because I’d written a story that children could understand and enjoy.

Later that year my family moved and I never got my story back. But the seed was planted and I’ve wanted to write fun stories for children ever since.

I currently live in northern Idaho with my husband Barry and our three children, two dogs and a cat. Each and every member of my family (including the furry ones) inspire creativity and more stories than I can capture in writing.
