Bio: Currently, I am located in beautiful Lancaster County, PA where I grew up. Technically, I’ve been a free-lance writer since my second grade teacher let me go into her closet for notebook paper to use for my story writing. My first love is fiction but I have also taken an interest in article writing and Christian devotionals. I am currently working on an allegorical novel and have also written several unpublished play scripts. In 2011, I graduated from the three month long School of Writing with Youth With A Mission, Woodcrest near Lindale, Texas. I have spent a number of years in missionary work and traveled to almost a dozen different countries. I have worked mostly in administrative support roles, retail and, briefly, theater, in the several decades since high school graduation. Besides creative writing, I also have a passion for the fine and performing arts, books, animals and animal assisted-therapy and have a strong interest in nurturing the spiritual walk of new Christians from completely non-Christian backgrounds. And if you are at all interested in the irrelevant, mundane details of who I am, my favorite color is green, I have a great sense of humor and one of my favorite activities in the entire world is theater improvisational exercises. I also grew up Mennonite (not Amish) and one of my pet peeves about today’s culture is that everyone is in too much of a hurry!
