Thank you for coming by. I write from Michigan's west coast, where I was born and raised and where I returned with my husband to raise our two sons. This landscape and its weathers, its four distinct seasons, its animals and plants and its Great Lakes people, too, steep my nonfiction.

I also write for organizations and non-profits that hire me to write stories about how we live and give to others—not only in West Michigan, but around this blue-green globe. Writing about both the natural world and our human community, I've found One Life, One Great Love holding us all.

Advent is the season of dwindling light and gathering cold – with a mystery at its core.
