I'm a married mother of three who has always loved to read. I grew up on a farm in North Dakota near my grandparents, who were original homesteaders. Listening to, and reading, the tales of the old days gave me an enormous respect and admiration for the pioneers who settled in our area. I hope to honor their memory with my stories--which have fictional main characters, but are true historically.
