Comments from the author about writing: My writing style would be similar to Nicholas Sparks. My first novel, Our Heart, blends the recent past and present together to tell a story about love and betrayal. My second novel, Remember Me, maintains the emotional aspect of my writing by challenging readers to answer the question: "What if?" In Remember Me, I probed time travel from a morality perspective. If you had to relive the last twenty-five years again, but still the same age you are now, what would you do? My latest novel is Ridicule, a psychological suspense thriller, and I am currently writing Isolation, an emotional journey with a touch of ghost story added in.

All of my novels are fiction. They take place in fictional and real parts of Iowa. I try to blend emotion and strong characters together to form a story that will stay with readers long after the reading is done.
