Mending Stone is an adventure in creative living. There are hard things, struggles, and set backs in life. Sometimes we feel nothing can change, hurts cannot be mended. But naming our pain helps. Sharing our issues and ideas moves us forward. And allowing ourselves to dream helps bring us to new possibilities!

I have a lot of stories! Maybe you do, too!

Mending Stone, the novel, and then this website, began as an odd dream I could not forget. I struggled to name it, struggled to write it. I struggled to bring out the pain I felt with the characters, but they were real to me. Lessons they learned, I learned. And I have grown so much! Now my life is filled with adventure: diversions, discoveries, delights!

Writing on the posts page and in my books (Mending Stone, Catching Rain, Seeding Hope) explores creative living! Join me in the adventure!

We have so much to share!

But first, enjoy this short Trailer for my debut novel, and then I’ll tell you more!

Mending Stone is a creative love story, not a usual romance. It began with a strange winter dream I could not forget! Two years later, I finished writing the first of many drafts, but it was another fifteen years (YES! 15!) before the first publication! Images for this book trailer are based on the original Mending Stone cover which was published in 2011 by Henschel Haus Publishing.

A new “storm of emotion” cover of the book with an updated interior came out in 2013. Included at the back of this new version is an itinerary of locations and businesses mentioned in the story. Readers are encouraged to enjoy the adventure of visiting these either in person or by researching them using the information provided. I hope you will enjoy making more discoveries!

I thought I was done then with the story! But it was not done with me! It continued on in what became the Possibility Series with Book 2, Catching Rain, out in 2014, and book 3, Seeding Hope, published in 2016.

I love the characters in these books! They are as close as family and dear friends! The story settings focus on beautiful landscapes, especially of the Northwest where I’ve lived most of my life.
