Writing Portfolio

This page is dedicated to my writing portfolio and current projects.

In late 2009 my first novel, To a Distant Land was released by Ark House Publishers.

Wrongly accused and sentenced to seven years transportation, Katie Donovan is not the only one leaving behind everything familiar to travel to a distant land …


On the journey Katie finds friends and a new faith but it is in a distant land that her faith will face its greatest challenge. Will she stand the test?


Samuel McKinnon accepts a position as spiritual advisor on a convict ship, intending to return home once the journey is complete but he soon discovers that God’s plans are contrary to his own. Will he have the courage to step into the unknown and trust God to direct his steps?


Rhiannon Sanford immigrates with her family to Australia after a rift between her grandfather and father forces the family to leave everything behind. Her father’s dream of a new life will require sacrifice and challenge. Will the price be too great?

Currently I am looking for a publisher for my second novel, On Eagles' Wings, since Ark House Press has made the decision not to consider fiction manuscripts until mid-2011. At the same time I am working on a third MS that will be the final book in the Distant Land series as well as working on another MS.



I am a member of FaithWriters (an online Christian Writers Group) and as such have a number of short stories and articles that you are welcome to view. Many of these have been published in print or online magazines and journals:

No Room

The Scent of Rain

Anna's Heart

The Veil

Stille Nacht Heilige Nacht

Go Home and Forget

Spirit of Thanksgiving

A Mountaintop Experience

The Parable of the Christmas Drama

Welcome to the Journey of Life


I have also had short stories or articles published in the following anthologies:



Quilting Patches of Life







Come Away With Me
