Growing up in Idaho provided a childhood that many would believe to be fiction. As a youth I bounced back and forth between what was right and trying to walk the edge of destruction; leaving me very acquainted with both forces present on this earth. As an adult, my family has lived in many locations, yet Salt Lake City has been considered home for more than twenty years.
Being interested in tearing apart and putting together my bikes as a child grew into a life long hobby of building and painting custom motorcycles and cars. My work career has been as diverse and evolving as every other aspect of my life. The recession of the 80's caused me to move from construction to the security of Telecommunications. Later, again finding myself back in construction, the recent recession sent me scurrying for my former career in Telecom.
This life full of turmoil and amazing experiences provided a vast library to pull stories from. However, the desire to create this series of books came from living in a family that has been threaded together through generations. My wife and three daughters added a dimension of love and memories that has given my life true purpose. Another driving force has been my spiritual experiences and the search to gain the knowledge of what it all means. God has granted me an amazing experience on this earth, and even greater, the ability to see that it is an amazing experience.

My six younger siblings and I grew up in Idaho and were raised in the Church. Although I went through the motions I never developed a testimony of my own. When I was nineteen, I moved to Seattle. Within a few years, I was married and had a baby boy. My husband joined the church but soon divorced largely due to religious differences.
My love of writing began with keeping a journal. Through personal journals of ancestors, I realized how "family" extends far beyond our parents, brothers and sisters. Nearly every story I have ever written involved relationships that extended from the pre-existence to earthly families.
Personal inspiration eventually brought my eternal companion into my life, and we made our home in Poulsbo, Washington. Though he has completed his test on earth, living near my son, his family, and extended family members makes it easy to recognize the thread through time that binds us all together.
