When asked, "What is her favorite Book, she answers,
 "I have to admit that my history based series: ‘Hank of Twins Rivers; Journey of Change’ is my favorite. I took Hank's character from my son, who at Hank’s age, walked along the Platte River in Nebraska with me and we discussed what a journey across the country in a covered wagon would have been like back in the 1800’s. Many of his ideas of evil claim jumpers, raging river crossings, wild horse hunting; buffalo stampedes were incorporated into the manuscripts".
Book one and two are ready to read as an ebook, or print book. Book three is now in the production stage. 


Paragraph from first book, 'Journey of Change' chapter nineteen, book one ‘Buffalo Stampede  

“A low rumbling interrupted Hank’s thoughts. He noticed a dark cloud behind them. He ran toward the wagons. “Dust storm coming,” he hollered. Uncle Mac, shading his eyes looked back. A look of horror came to his face. “Saints preserve us! They be buffalo,” he shouted. “Square up the wagons, JB.” He galloped toward Hank, calling, “Laddie, run!” The ground shook under Hank’s feet. The roar of thousands of buffalo stampeding toward them deafened him. He glanced behind. The huge animals were about to run him down. He stretched his legs as far as they could possibly stretch and ran for the wagon."
