Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest and was fortunate enough to spend my early years on the Northern Oregon coast. As an adult though, my home of choice is the Portland Oregon area. Portland is a beautiful city just 60 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and is centered around the Willamette River.

Portland has been nicknamed “Bridgetown” because of the many bridges connecting the West Side of the city to the East Side. Some of those bridges are over 100 years old and have been designated historic landmarks. On a clear day, our view of snow-covered Mt. Hood to the east is magnificent and in winter the skiing there is fantastic. Our warm, dry summers and cold, rainy winters are the ideal climate for growing roses, so Portland is also known as “The City of Roses.”

I am blessed to be the author of “Heart Seasons: The Rainbow Revelation.” This story was inspired by real life events and the never-ending search for an understanding of life’s purpose, and the pursuit of a path to filling that emptiness in the soul that only the love of God can provide. In addition to writing, I am passionate about a “Healthy Happy Lifestyle and Real Food Meals!” As Lily, the lead character in my book, would say, “I love to read cookbooks as if they were novels!”

“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13, NLT
