Growing up on a Mennonite produce farm, I created brothers Terry, Gary, and Larry, to help pass the time doing chores. I told stories about them to my brother as we weeded strawberries, thinned carrots, or washed fresh eggs.
For about a decade, I wrote books for adults through a Mennonite publishing house, including From the White House to the Amish, Blue Christmas, and Captain Garrison. I enjoyed traveling, researching, and interviewing for seven books. I also shared my life as a cardiac nurse and member of an inner city Anabaptist church on my weekly blog.
Now my husband Marnell and I have a child of our own and I am returning to my own childhood by writing a children’s adventure series. The Brady Street Boys Indiana Adventure Series brings Terry, Gary, and Larry back to life. The story takes place in the 1980s, when Marnell and I were growing up. Book One, Trapped in the Tunnel, released July 2021.
