The pen is mightier than the sword

I hope you enjoy every page of my action-packed medieval novels, and learn about interesting parallels to history!

When I was nine years old, I showed a keen interest in writing, having already written several short children’s stories.  I attempted to write mystery, and fantasy, but neither suited me, and I began to look towards historical fiction as a possibility. Shortly afterwards I excitedly began a simple slideshow of what later became Eleanor. 
Originally from Montana, I toured the United States, at an early age, playing in the Balyeat Family Band. I published my first book, Eleanor in 2014, and immediately started writing a sequel.
My constant research keeps me in touch with everything I write, as does the experience of different cultures I visit.
I have traveled to seven countries, including: Mexico, Canada, Bahamas, Japan, Philippines, Iceland and Ireland.
I absolutely love captivating my nephews and nieces with my storytelling!
I also make medieval films with my family and friends, for which I sew costumes, write script, and coach children in acting skills.
Being the youngest of nine children, I occupied myself by playing princess with her imaginary maids, and designing stories for myself to act out. I read all the books I could get my hands on, and fell in love with the medieval ages. I love, and aspire to lead people to the exciting place of my imagination, installing an eagerness for history and inspiring a deeper relationship with God.
