Escape. Enter. Explore. 

Escape the ordinariness of your everyday life.

Enter a captivating story that’ll inspire you with hope.

Explore a new world–a place you’ve probably never imagined visiting.

My stories will help you do that–whether you’re here because of my YA historical fiction novels One Degree of Freedom and Two Lights of Hope, my book Sentenced to Life about a former prisoner, or We Wait You about my missionary experience in Eastern Europe.

All my life, I’ve been known as a storyteller. My stories will transport you to another world: to see life through the eyes of a Romanian teenager during the Cold War, a lifer in San Quentin with no hope of being released, or a missionary trying to make a difference in a world where people never knew what to believe.

At first glance, these books may seem disconnected, but they share a common thread: I tell hope-filled redemption stories, both made up and true, about people who seek freedom from oppression. A teenage girl whose life is dictated against her wishes. A prisoner serving life for stealing $116. A people living under the thumb of a dictator.

Just out! The story continues: Two Lights of Hope

Debut Novel: One Degree of Freedom

Historical fiction for young adults. Adriana is a Romanian teenager in the 1980s, who lives in a place where someone is always watching and listening, a place cut off from the rest of the world, a place where God does not exist. Everything changes when she steps through a wardrobe into a room, hidden in the wall, filled with stacks of banned books.
