Winner of the American Christian Fiction Writer's Carol Award for Dauntless!!!


I would love to speak at your churches, book clubs, book stores, writers conferences, schools, ladies groups, or other similar venues. My undergraduate degree in Interpersonal Communications--as well as twenty years experience in teaching and ministry--have prepared me to bring a vibrant and engaging message to your group.

Here are some of the topics I would be happy to cover for various venues. Feel free to peruse my blog and learn more about me, my passions, and my viewpoints. I will gladly tailor any subject to the time allotted.
