I grew up on a farm in SE Kansas with pigs, cattle, horses and sheep, as well as space to run free. After college, I remember being in a city park flying kites and having the worst ache in my heart for wide-open spaces. That longing took me back home where I married a high school classmate. My husband and I have three daughters and raise and train American Quarter Horses.
To put it simply, I love living in the country -- fresh air, quiet atmosphere, breathtaking sunsets. Besides writing, my hobbies include reading, cooking, sewing, gardening and garage sale shopping. I enjoy playing the piano, taking walks with our two golden retrievers, and singing in the church choir. I'm also a 4-H mom and a Sunday school teacher.
If you haven't guessed by now, the books I write are set in the country. I believe my most dedicated readers will be those who live in the country, those who have moved from the country and still hold it in their hearts, or those who have never lived there but long for the simple life it offers. Because of this, I've chosen Country at Heart as my writing brand, which is also the title of my Blog.
