As you can tell from my pictures, I love the outdoors.


My favorite summer pass times are traveling, camping, and hiking. I leave writing for the winter when the days are short and cold and the evenings long.


Because of my love for the outdoors, it's no wonder I found my home in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. This offers the best of outdoor activities, camping, hiking, kiteboarding, snowboarding... the list is endless!


Whenever we get the chance, my husband of 36 years, and I, take our camper to explore the United States. I hope to visit every National Park in the United States in search of inspiration and beauty.


I found my inspiration for my new novel, 

Storm at Keizer Manor, while living in Hillegom,

in the Netherlands.


Did I ever dream of becoming a multiple award winning author in the United States? I sure didn't. That seemed far beyond my reach.

Receiving such honor now is incredible.
