Bringing to life times, places and the people who live in them
Our planet, Earth, contains many worlds that seldom seem to touch. It’s easy to live in one familiar community and forget that anyplace else exists. Whether it is an African country in civil war, a time period long past, or a community of figure skaters and hockey players in a small American town, people love, create, experience pain, long for friendship and need to feel valued—all the things that make us human. I write about places I have known and communties I am discovering. I ask, what would it be like to live in that world--to be part of a community with different expectations, different values, different experiences from what I am used to?

I write for children and young people because they have their whole lives ahead of them. I want to stretch their world and give them images that will challenge the way they think about God, life and what faith in action looks like.
