My journey to becoming a writer began with some upper level history classes in college. What used to be the most boring subject EVER was suddenly my passion, thanks to some great professors. My first books via traditional publishing were non-fiction, being the big ol' Research Nerd that I am. Most are still available on Amazon. I enjoyed publishing books that would end up on school library shelves with my name on the spine. I spent many happy hours in the school library when I was a kid, so I had a little sentimental attachment there.
Recently I have turned my attention to fiction. I have half a dozen manuscripts in various stages of completion. First up is a middle-grade story called The Dala Horse. Think Little House on the Prairie meets Nancy Drew. Drawing on my historical non-fiction roots, it is the story of a first-generation American daughter of Norwegian immigrants in post-Civil War Texas. In addition to entertaining the reader, it includes plenty of background materials in the teaching guide to educate and inform. It's available from Amazon in paperback and e-book, as well as in audio format from Audible. Check out the book trailer here.
