about me


and thanks for stopping by.

A little bit of info 'about me' ...

Former feature writer/ad manager for very small rural newspaper.

First girl in my town to enter the "Punt, Pass and Kick" football competition. (Won respect only)

Midwest "Rock, Paper, Scissors Champion" (bruised but lived to tell the story)

Work featured in "Baby Talk Magazine," "Sesame St. Parent's Guide Magazine," "True Confessions"

(The football competition came before the job, btw) :)

Not interested in the desk, but love to have folks read and comment on my book. Since that rarely happens without swapping reads, may have to adjust my thinking about that, but for now, not playing the autho games.

Jesus and the journey to understand Him and His teachings is constantly swirling around in my mind, as well as thoughts of horses, countrysides and finding the perfect photo opportunity to share with others ... please feel free to visit my blog to view my photos!

Beyond Deer Trail


As tragedy targets all he holds dear, James Weathers' reaction entangles an entire mountain community, including Randall Hepp, a troubled teen with nothing to lose.

Faith and tragedy collide as secrets and a series of events threaten to completely unravel the fabric of a small town nestled deep in the mountains of West Virginia.

Okay, just read the introduction for the second time and made some notes. I will say that there is something about this introduction that is rather charming - if not, I would have skipped it. Why? Because to be honest, I really feel it is bogged down with too much information, especially considering... view book

Wow....I really don't know what else to say. Wow. What a haunting, painful story that rips at the heart. I am not quite sure what to say, because I am still processing it, and it is too painful for me to read over again for any specific suggestions. Oh, I do have one. My biggest compliment is that w... view book

Hi Lesa:) This is my much overdue reading of your book - I am so sorry for the delay. I read the first two chapters of "FInding Us", and very much enjoyed how just the first paragraph sucks the reader into this story. I especially admired the following parts - "yesterday's make-up and some hairy ... view book

Hi there, Just read your first two chapters. Wow! I love your writing style. The story is easy to follow and not overly worded - I love how you have so many gems sprinkled throughout - "heart climbing my rib cage", "panicky animal", "brittle joy" - stunning use of descriptives. You are the type o... view book
