“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Idyllwood is my writing world. It is a place of dreams, hopes, romanticism, and idyllic scenes. It is a place of God’s grace, peace, inspiration, and reaching for the stars. It is a place to share my attempts at climbing the Alpine path, where friends, families, and future fans can follow my writing adventures and publication attempts.


Writing transports me to another world. As does reading, but that’s another story. You can find out about my current projects by visiting my page Projects! Who knows what you will find? Struggles with hope, enchanted forests, or historical tragedy? I love them all.


My blog, Idyllwood Musings, has been my online haven for over 10 years. Previously called A Walk in the Forest, “musings” is perhaps a more accurate term. Follow me to watch my walk in the forest of life, struggling through life itself, career, and writing, always moving towards greater hope and another patch of sunshine.

Who Am I?

You can find out about me, my website, and my blog by clicking on Just Me! In summary, however, I am a faithful Christian, a hopeful writer, and a hopeless romantic. I’ve been writing books, stories, and poems since I was 8 years old and, after all this time, I am beginning to take my writing more seriously in hopes of getting published. Stick around to read about my projects, their statuses, and my ups and downs along the way in both life and writing.

Graveyard Tales

I’ve loved meandering through graveyards ever since I was young, influenced, I’m sure, by L.M. Montgomery. But the truth is, there are so many stories in graveyards. So much history between one name and a couple of dates. So, Graveyard Tales is my attempt to honor that. Every other Wednesday, I will post a fictional story featuring the names and dates of a gravestone to bring life back to a sober place.
