I’ve written for both children and adults, and love each readership! To learn more about my books, click on the images or links below.
My latest children’s book, “The Twelve Days of Christmas in North Dakota,” published by Sterling Publishing, tracks the adventures of Henry and his cousin Piper, who’s come to visit him in North Dakota for Christmas. Within the pages of this book, illustrated beautifully by Jess Golden, learn what treasures these two travelers uncover with their trusty bird friend, Marty the Meadowlark, at their side. I can’t wait to share this gem with kids from our state and beyond. Adults will love it too, I think! You can order it here or here, or, if you’re in the Fargo-Moorhead area, check with Barnes and Noble, Vintage Point or Zandbroz Variety store. In Bismarck, the Heritage Museum gift store carries it, or find it at Barnes and Noble.
The second is a compilation to which I contributed, along with 80+ other contributors, “The Catholic Mom’s Prayer Companion: A Book of Daily Reflections” (Ave Maria Press, Aug. 2016). It’s a joy to be part of a project that I know will edify the prayer life of countless women. Along with being a contributor, I am a beneficiary. Those who have this gem of a book in hand will be undoubtedly blessed.
I also collaborated with Ramona Trevino on her memoir, “Redeemed by Grace: A Catholic Woman’s Journey to Planned Parenthood and Back.” Solo projects include my first children’s books: the Flicker-Tale-Award-winning “P is for Peace Garden: A North Dakota Alphabet,” and my first book, “First Salmon,” which introduces a special tradition of the Salish tribe through the eyes of its main character, Charlie.
