Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those young-at-heart to read more through my Quest Books set in these worlds.
Q&A With the Author:
Now that we’ve gotten to know each other, tell me a story. It can be long or short. From your childhood or last week. Funny, sad, or somewhere in between. Just make sure it’s yours. What’s your story?
My childhood is filled with a variety of stories that I’ll always remember. Here’s a few: Walking up to the firehouse on Saturday nights with my brother and his friend and my friend to play Bingo. Standing by my mailbox when I was around 4/5 with a balloon. The kids were walking home from school, and someone walked up to me and popped my balloon. I cried for a long while. Picking cherries in the grandparents orchard. Swiping rhubarb from the corner garden up the block.

2014 EVVY Merit Award for Historical Fiction from CIPA (Colorado Independent Publishers Assoc.)
“A delightful way to bring history to children.”
“We are using this as resource for world cultures for home school.”
“And what a tale it is! King Tut tells us his entire life story from when he was a boy and not yet acknowledged as heir to the throne of Egypt, through his father’s death and his own ascension to the throne; we learn of his love for Ankhesenpaaten, whom he married, the sadness they experienced at the loss of a child, and the politics and hierarchy of ancient Egypt with its court intrigue.”
