Her latest book: SUGAR BIRDS

Set in NW Washington State in 1985, Sugar Birds is the riveting, tender account of young Aggie, who lights a tragic fire then hides in a PNW forest, evading those who must bring her home before wilderness claims them all. A captivating story about grief, trust, and the search for forgiveness.
