I earned my Master's in Writing for Children from Hamline University in 2012, and three weeks later I gave birth to my son. It was quite a time.

I write gardening books (I used to be a horticulturist) and a bunch of YA and MG fantasy. After 20 years of trying to be traditionally published, and after many times when I got so close, I went over to self-publishing in September 2016 and before I knew it, I had 22 books out in the world, and I am having the best time ever.

My newest series, co-written with Pauline Creeden, is the Dragonriders of Skala, about a group of sword-friends in the early days of the Vikings who are thrust into adventure, warfare, and song-magic. The first book, THE FLAME OF BATTLE, is available for preorder and due out in May. The second book, THE FIRE OF ROSES, will be out thereafter, followed by a prequel called A WHISPER OF SMOKE.

I'm publishing a series of gardening books, drawing on my 20+ years as a municipal horticulturist, rose garden potentate, landscape designer, greenhouse manager, etc. I have a bad back now, but the memories live on! I've started the Easy-Growing Gardening series, which so far covers vegetable gardening, roses, houseplants, gardening month by month, tomatoes, perennials, lawns, and Japanese beetles. Stay tuned, there will be more!
