In her own words...

Writing is something I’ve always enjoyed. I think I was seven years old when I knew I wanted to write. Unfortunately, most of my inspiration comes at night. Often, I find myself awake in my pajamas writing in the wee hours. But I have learned if I have an idea, to jot it down. The best advice I’ve received in my writing journey is not to be afraid to try different genres, to take chances. Having written in a corporate environment for a while, it is a pleasure to have a voice that is my own and not a mouthpiece for another entity. As an author, I have learned it is okay to experiment with writing, and it is also necessary to seek the opinions of others. Reviews by fellow writers and editors make my work better. I love a blank piece of paper (or a blank computer screen). It is a canvas for me and will become anything I imagine.

Reader's Five Star Review

 ***** Another reader's five star review for The War Within, the Story of Josef


 "I've read many stories of the exploits of WWII. I have never been exposed to this aspect of one's man's personal hardship and the kindness he encountered among his "enemies". It teaches us that we are all human and compassionate after all and war has no boundaries."

***** Another five star review for The War Within, The Story of Josef


"This book tells a remarkable story. The War Within is well written, historically accurate and deeply sensitive to the humanity of all concerned. It has opened my eyes to the goodness found in both the German citizenry and their Polish slave laborers amidst the horrific inhumanity of World War II.
The story engulfed me and changed the way I viewed the wartime German population, many of whom were caught up in a struggle not of their making. Two teenage Polish brothers, forced into slavery and facing an uncertain future, are reminiscent of numerous acts of unpardonable persecution by past cultures and not unlike what is revealed for us by the news images we currently encounter.
The story of determination, fortitude and endurance revealed by Josef Walkow during his enslavement and the magnanimity and resourcefulness he demonstrated during its aftermath are models for us all to admire."

The Far Moist End of the Earth
Bonnie Jensen volunteers to teach in a missionary school in Southeast Asia after her husband dies. The year is 1908, and life in Boston is quite restrictive for the young high-spirited widow in her mid-twenties. When she arrives at the mission on the shores of the Indian Ocean, she delves into teaching and discovers her attraction for the pastor, a black man, called a Negro at that time, from Mississippi. The attraction is mutual, and forbidden. Over the course of two years Bonnie discovers secrets each person on the mission staff harbors, and realizes that no one is at Hope Mission to spread the word of God...each has another, deeper, darker reason for being there.
