My Writing

The rumors are true: I write more than a blog! My book Amen? Questions for a God I Hope Exists (Lake Drive Books, 2022) is "a collection of graceful musings, prayers, and poems for a wandering, wondering, doubt-laden, hope-filled faith that reflects the desire to believe as much as belief itself."

As you wait for your copy to arrive, feel free to check out my work online and on the page. You can also follow along with my publishing adventures at my Amazon author page.

Social media more your speed? Find me on Twitter (where I muse about writing and faith), Instagram (where I seek beauty and humor), Facebook (where I share more personal life updates), and LinkedIn (where I showcase accomplishments from my day job).
