With my long time Sweet Husband I have: raised three extraordinary children, now all married to remarkable spouses, fed cattle in deep snow, doctored cows, horses, chickens, pigs, goats and sheep, driven a team of horses, made soap, spun wool, opened a tea room, had tea in a Ger in Mongolia, viewed the Three Gorges Dam in China and waved to the Queen of England. I have been an elementary school teacher and am an avid photographer. I am positively addicted to my grandchildren.


Blogging is a joy and I am currently writing an etiquette column for anewscafe.com.


My daughter Kassidy and I collaborated on a story-cookbook: Once Upon A Tea Room…Stories & Wisdom from Nammer Kathy. I wrote the stories, she took the pictures and we both contributed to the recipes! We are eagerly awaiting a publisher.


My next project is a novel…a romantic mystery set in Ozark Amish country. We have been friends with two wonderful Amish families in the Ozarks for over twenty years. This family makes the most delicious, wonderful sorghum I have ever had….I’ve been ordering it and having it shipped to California for as long as I’ve known them. They are also famous for their baked good…cookies, pies and other yummies! I always stop in to see them when I’m in the neighborhood.


I am a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Sisters in Crime, Oregon Christian Writers, Quills of Faith and the Writers Forum.


Happy Infusions,
