This photo of me was taken by my daughter

at Richardson Grove Redwoods, one of the truly

magical places on earth. 



All of my adult life has been shared with horses, dogs, cats, and children. I find people and animals endlessly fascinating and always inspiring. 


I haven't always been a writer. Other careers have included children's therapist, tree service partner, graphic designer at printers and weekly newspapers, and publishing my own mini magazine The Prairie Quilter. I have also been a camp counselor, riding instructor, dog groomer, landscape designer, waitress, substitute teacher, respite care provider, and legal assistant. I have lived in several areas of the US but my heart is in the West.

I own Quinn Editing at When not writing or editing, you can find me walking my dogs, in conversation with my cat, knitting, sewing, gardening, sketching, tending my many plants, and watching the wild birds I feed — anything to avoid doing the dishes ...


Spending time with my kids and grandkids are highlights of my life. I identify strongly with my Celtic roots, and believe we are all here to make a difference. I am pleased that 'seasoned' heroines have become 'a thing,' and believe it's never too late to become the hero or heroine of your own story.
