I love providing the adventures that help your children get interested in my book series. You never know what will spark their imaginations and interest! Just keep trying until you find something they love to read about… I know a lot of people like to read about their hobbies. That got me to thinking… Do you have a favorite hobby?

My favorite hobby is reading. I try to read a book every few days. My goal is to always read at least 60 books a year. I love how reading inspires your imagination and creativity. It is relaxing and exciting at the same time! I would love to learn about different series of books or your favorite authors! I am always researching about books. I love several different genres (types of books). I read books with my kids, by myself, and for book clubs! Please share your favorite with me on
I have several hobbies actually. I love painting and drawing, especially landscapes, sunsets and trees. I use acrylic, oil, watercolor, ink, charcoal, colored pencil, pretty much any medium. Art relaxes me. I also love taking photographs of landscapes and trees and sunsets. I am fascinated with all the beautiful things God has created. He has a way better imagination than I do, and I bask in his glory.

The place I feel most at home and at peace is at the beach. In particular, in Florida. I call Missouri home though, maybe one day I will relocate, you never know… Life happens and things change, but for now, the Midwest Heartland is home. I live in the Show-Me state, so I do like to go see lots of interesting things!

One other hobby I have had my entire life is fishing. Not everyone is a fan of fishing, but I have loved it since my Dad taught me how to fish pretty much as soon as I was about 2 years old. We spent a lot of quality time fishing. He had lots of great spots to fish. He has always been better at it than me, but I love it anyway! Now I fish with my hubby and kids. There is really nothing better than spending the day fishing and enjoying a nice fish fry with the family.

Of course you can guess my last hobby. Dreaming up stories and characters for future books! I am always dreaming up topics and ideas and storylines. I take notes and pull stories together every time inspiration hits! Sometimes, even during my daughter’s Girl Scouts meetings!
Now you know a little about me and my hobbies. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me better! It is these things that inspire me to write. I hope you enjoy my books! I know I enjoyed dreaming up all the characters and stories… Until next time…
