Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website! I appreciate your kind support. In 2014, I self-published two novels, Adventures in Dating and After We Met. The books are loosely based on my time in Anchorage, Alaska. I lived there for ten years, learned to fish, enjoyed camping, and saw wildlife right outside my door.

Purchase the books on Amazon.com or here on this website. Adventures in Dating is also available at my favorite coffee shop, Bluebird Coffee Company on Bond Street.

Since those books were published, I’ve written part (30,000 words) of a third novel and entered several literary contests.

Drum roll, please … I have big news!


I’ve written a book about Bend food, chefs, and farm-to-table cuisine! So thankful to Arcadia Publishing and The History Press for this amazing opportunity. This summer, I interviewed farmers, chefs, and other organizations. The book will be published on June 25, 2018. The title is Bend Food: Stories of Local Farms and Restaurants.
