Author Biography

I'm an old soul that accomplished an unusual goal: publish 12 books in 12 months. I did it in 11 because I'm the white rabbit of time (so my children tell me).

To put icing on my forty-year-long dream of being published, Chest of Souls Book One, Klaus, and Pic Jump recently received awards in the Readers Favorite Award Contest 2011. I've never submitted my work to a contest before. It was fun!

I graduated from Children's Institute of Literature. I'm privileged to work in another world peopled with extraordinary characters who constantly surprise, thrill, and amuse me.

By the time you read this, I'll be working with awesome new characters to turn upside down (or inside out), spinning more plots to weave into their lives and planting subplots to harvest when they aren't looking. I'm grateful for divine inspiration which is so abundant in my life.

My family and I live in Idaho within sight of an extinct volcano. If it emits one smoky burp we're gone. I thrive on the written word, laughter of my family and friends, and the look of love in my husband's eyes.

Reviewed by Alice DiNizo for Readers' Favorite

Pictarine Nebbie loved her parents but not her name; she prefers Pic. Pic and her best friend/cousin, Dar, run an employment agency. Pic meets the most marvelous man, Mason Jump, in the elevator of the building where her employment agency is located. Mason entertains terminally ill children, gives to charity and is totally devoted to doing for others. He and Pic fall deeply in love, meet each other's families, and marry weeks after meeting. Do they live happily ever after? No, their wedding car is sideswiped, Pic suffers massive head injuries and lies in a coma!

Though badly injured, she is given an out-of-body ability to transfer from one pair of eyes to another. Pic connects with a trucker named Trig, and then lands as a little girl's Barbie doll's eyes. The little girl, Emma, and her mother and father board a plane with a terrorist on board. Pic, Emma and Emma's mother flee for their lives. Pic and Emma land back in Pic's hometown of Evanston, Wyoming, with one of the terrorist's comrades coming after them. Pic has visions of Mason and her loved ones when she's held under water, but will she ever awake from her coma get away from all the terrorist troubles and resume her life with her wonderful husband?

This is a really first rate story with a unique plot that flows well from beginning to end of story. It offers romance and then adventure that will keep the reader enthralled until story's ending. It is well-edited, extremely well-written with believable characters who hold true throughout the story. A wide number of readers will enjoy this when it's in book form. The discerning will be delighted at the author's insertion of a book written by herself into the storyline.
