Love Conquers All!
I love love.
And courage. Especially courage.
I love stories that take me on a journey of trial to triumph, of captivity to freedom, of good vanquishing evil. I love a story that portrays the beauty of redemption and self-sacrificial love, or encourages me to trust the amazing power of grace. I love entertaining stories that give me all the feels, but also engage my mind, and that's what I aim to write.
I also write to offer hope. There are so many ways we can encourage and uplift one another, and I find great joy in being able to do that with words. In fact, I think offering hope and encouragement brings me more joy than any other aspect of being a writer.
"Now faith, hope and love abide, but the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:13
But my greatest aim as a wordsmith is to step back from all these things and consider the unbridled power of Love. It's the thing we practice in this laboratory of life, the thing that propels our stories forward. It's the thing that heals, inspires, creates, forgives, motivates, protects the vulnerable, offers undeserved mercy, vanquishes hate. It's the driving force in our hero journey that sees us through to our final destination. Love wins when all else fails.

How far can love bend before it breaks?
My fifth full-length novel, The Secret Place, released April 15, 2021. It's an inspirational love story about a young mom with a dire secret and a confidante suddenly unable to keep it. Set along Oregon's stunning McKenzie River, it's a poignant tale of mothers, daughters, and sisters, and the impossible gulfs that only Love can bridge.
"The Secret Place might seem like the typical family drama, but it is much more than that. It’s a journey full of unexpected twists, but unexpected hope as well. While there are several heavy themes found in this story, I never felt bogged down or hopeless while reading. However, it does realistically portray the consequences of life choices and the impact those choices can have on others. Ultimately, though, it’s a story of profound reconciliation and healing. I think the best stories are the ones that cause me to do a heart check – the ones that entertain me, but also give me something deep to ponder." -Beth, Goodreads Review
