I’ve always wanted to write stories about characters my readers could relate to and fall in love with. Creating characters is my favorite part of the writing process. I love characters who make mistakes. Characters who are not beautiful or perfect. Characters who say and do things they wish they could take back. Characters like me…and probably like you too.

Jamie Steele from my Jenna’s Creek Series had lived in my head for over twenty years before she came alive on the pages of Streams of Mercy, a novel that won the Bay Area International Publishers Association award for Best First Fiction. I hope readers will fall in love with and relate to Jamie as much as I have, as well as my growing list of heroes and heroines.
