 Welcome to my site! I’m so glad you’re here. Thank you for your interest in me and my writing.

I have enjoyed many creative pursuits over the years, but I find writing the most fulfilling. Writing helps me understand my world. I filled a copious amount of journals recording my faith journey for more than thirty years. I now use a digital format to record my thoughts, prayers, and stories.

In the past few years, writing has helped me to live with the challenging disease of multiple sclerosis. My journey has been riddled with grief and the laying down of abilities I thought I would always be able to use. I’m convinced life is more about what we lay down than pick up. Good things can come out of what we deem “bad” circumstances. MS has taught me to be more resilient, more thankful, and more gracious towards myself and others. I’ve learned not to give up, to do what I can, and to cherish each day I am given.


Much to my amazement, I authored a series of books! Take my word for it, a lot can be accomplished in small, seemingly insignificant sections of time. Ruby Moon, my first book in the series: By the Light of the Moon, falls into the category of historical fiction with a Christian theme. Ruby Moon embodies a tale of grief, guilt, greed, and redemption. For a back cover synopsis of my books click on the, “About My Novels Page.”

Most of all, I’m a daughter saved by God’s grace, strengthened by faith, and transformed by His Spirit. I trust He will fulfill in me all He’s called me to do. I hope you follow along with me as I journey down this road called life.

Hebrews 11:1 Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. NIV

Blessings, Jenny
