I’m an experienced historical fiction writer and storyteller. I’ve written, directed and produced plays and told stories for all types of community celebrations. Most recently, I published my eighth historical fiction book: COOKING ON THE OXCART TRAIL 1858. A degree from Minnesota State University-Moorhead in speech, drama, and English exposed me to opportunities to be a stand-alone performer and to be a part of stage presentations. I delight in interacting with my audience, making them unsuspecting participants as I tell my stories. I currently spend my time public speaking, storytelling, writing, and volunteering in various organization.
