When you’ve lived a few years, you collect long-ago memories—playing cowboys and Indians, seeing the first run of The Wizard of Oz, dancing the Irish Washer Woman, collecting tinfoil for the war effort, driving a pony to a red ribbon, getting married and pregnant soon after, thinking hard about the implications of having a baby, and finally, enjoying the pleasures of kids, grandkids, and authoring. Add to this list—gardening, house construction, tree farming, and loving on people—all of which help bring color and humor to her fiction. One of her major writing goals has been to make scriptural principles understandable and relevant for today’s readers through the undeniable power of story.
