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 novel One Degree of Freedom (coming out this fall), my social justice non-fiction book (being written now), or my memoir about my missionary experience in Eastern Europe (published several years ago). My writing will transport you to another world: to see life through the eyes of a Romanian teenager during the Cold War or a lifer in San Quentin with no hope of being released.

I’m glad you dropped by for a visit. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and together, let’s look for traces of the divine in both the commonplace muddle and the drama of life. You can find out more about my books, read my blog, and let me know your thoughts.

Coming in November 2020: One Degree of Freedom

My debut novel, One Degree of Freedom, historical fiction for young adults, will be released this fall, published by Illuminate. It is the story of Adriana, 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.

“Candid . . . a fresh voice”

Inspiring and with humorous moments, We Wait You is the real-life story of hearts transformed after the 1989 revolutions that forever changed Eastern Europe, as told by one woman who made a difference.
