Her writing has won numerous honors, including first place in the Kay Snow Awards for Fiction from Willamette Writers. <br> When she isn't hard at work on the next novel, or mentoring the latest group of writing talent as a part-time instructor for Mt. Hood Community College, she enjoys hiking, gardening, and traveling.</p>
