I have a BA in English with a Creative Writing Emphasis and a Publishing minor and have taken graduate courses in Literature.
I attend writers’ conferences, webinars, and read writing craft books and am a member of Oregon Christian Writers, American Christian Fiction Writers, and Idaho Writers League. I lead a local writers’ group.
Some of my favorite fiction writers are Flannery O’Connor, Marilynne Robinson, Anne Tyler, Fredrik Backman, and Barbara Kingsolver. Some of my favorite nonfiction writers are Madeleine L’Engle, Frederick Buechner, and Ann Voscamp.
I’ve won writing contests and have short stories published in Live, IDAHO Magazine, and Talking River Review, and Otherworlds. Here are links to two of my online publications:
- Colors of a River, 2017 First Place Winners’ Circle in Idaho Magazine
- River Train, 2016 First Place Adult Division in Idaho Magazine
I’d love to hear who some of your favorite authors are and the titles of books you love.
