Welcome! I am so glad you are here!

Feel free to click around to learn more about me and my writing. The ABOUT tab will give you the whole story, but here’s the quick version.

My husband and I have six children (including a set of twins), ages 29 down to 14. The four oldest are all grown up or in college, but the rest of us live on the family farm way out in the Georgia countryside. I’m a teacher and children’s author, and I enjoy writing about history and science. A few of my favorite things are good books, coffee, dark chocolate, beautiful sunsets, and rainy days.

Check out my blog for the latest news and posts, and please come back and visit again soon.
