I was born in Huntington, WV, and grew up in Muskegon, MI.
I fell in love with books at a tender age, when my mother used to read them to me as a child.
My love of children's books was re-discovered as I taught for five years at a childcare center in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
I have also written Sunday School and Vacation Bible School material for a local church I attended for 17 years, along with helping to develop curriculum for their childcare center.
One of my favorite Scriptures is Jeremiah 29:11...God thinks thoughts of peace towards His children, to give us a future and a hope.
