Story communicates. It does more than entertain, it prods us to think. A well-crafted tale challenges, soothes, imparts truth, or attempts to conceal it.

For seekers, stories open blind eyes. They speak a language the heart can hear.

They bring the prodigal home.

The very first book I ever wrote was bound in green construction paper and illustrated with drawings by my own childish hand. It was about two frogs. Neither of them transformed into royalty.

Life is messy and beautiful. In everyone’s story there is truth and hope. My novels are about common struggles and the triumph of finding hope in the midst of the mess.

Hope is always there. My wish is for the stories I write to illuminate that hope.
