I was born and raised in South Dakota, and I love her people and rich history. To me, it’s the greatest place on the planet. The prairies, the hills and the heritage of the pioneers just can’t be beat. Living in South Dakota taught me how to work hard and persevere, even when things look really tough.

For many years I’ve also had a deep love for Italy and her colorful chronology. I was fortunate enough to visit Italy on my 25th wedding anniversary, and I added some of the details of my travels to my fictional series The Caselli Family Series. For a free download of the first 4 Chapters of volume # 1, The Pretender, click here.

My favorite sport is baseball – Detroit Tigers – and I can’t wait until the next time I get to see them play in Comerica Park.

I live for the next family barbeque.

My husband and I reside in Northwestern Iowa. We have three grown children and one grandson. We’ve rescued two cats and one Pomeranian.

I teach AWANA Cubbies and speak at women’s events. Ask for a sample of subjects or visit my website at:
