Thanks for stopping by.  I'm happy to tell you about my current projects, including books, and hope you will give me some feedback.

This website started, in 2011, as my nature website.
I am also a writer - of both nonfiction and fiction -  and have been happily jotting down both stories and my thoughts since the second grade in Enid, Oklahoma.

I love the natural world, and I want to share that love with you. My hope is that while reading these pages, you will come to understand - and maybe even love -  the world that we live in as much as I do.

The accompanying blog is both a nature blog and a writing blog. Each week's post will offer a little of both, so check back frequently. I offer information to help my readers connect with nature, learn some short lessons, and enjoy my experiences vicariously. Please visit and join my conversation about the beautiful world around us as well as information about my writing journey.

"When Jamie Aldrich was eleven years old, she and her siblings spent the summer with her great aunt Elizabeth. She doesn't remember what happened during that visit, and she's avoided Pawhuska, Oklahoma ever since. But when Elizabeth calls her, thirty years later, begging her to come, Jamie arrives to find her great aunt frail and agitated, inexplicably claiming her entire life was a sham.

"Now Elizabeth lies in a coma after what looks like an attempt on her life. Although Jamie has no idea who wants to harm her aunt, it's clear the danger hasn't passed.

Will Jamie be able to discover the truth before both she and Elizabeth are silenced forever?"
