My delight is to bring to light women's stories from the past and the present through my writing, story-telling and publishing. I am especially drawn to the
history of women. I find immense pleasure in seeking out the forgotten women in history.
As I've researched and written my books, I have come to know and love
the people I write about. Their lives have mostly been forgotten and
they want to be remembered; I am simply the conduit to pass on the
stories of their lives.
Barbara Tuchman defines history as
“simply a good story” and I’m convinced there are many good stories
about women in history, whether in your own family, in your communities, and
throughout the west. Everyone needs to know their heritage in
order to appreciate their own place in history.
We need connections to the past to bring balance and peace to our lives. Each of us stand on the shoulders of those who came
before, and as such, we have a solemn obligation to make our small
corner of the world a better place for all those who come after us.
