My early years were spent drawing and painting on a farm nestled amidst the rolling hills of Wisconsin. A few dog years later—after scribbling on acres of paper and splashing around buckets of paint—I graduated from U.W. Stout with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Then, my feet made a beeline for Minneapolis as the crow flies. But after traveling to Central America for eleven years and counting, I'd prefer living in the jungles of Costa Rica. I've won awards for my artwork and will continue to create more until the cows come home.
I have two published children's books: Maya Monkey and Mary Rode to Bethlehem on Me. Plus, the upcoming Mrs. Jones's Tea Party. These days, however, you’ll find me editing my dark, supernatural novel, Chorus of the Crows. Plus, I'm already writing my next story about Levitation.

Most people that venture to Belize spend most of their time on one of the islands. But the farming and fishing community of Hopkins offers many cultural and indigenous (Garifuna) rewards. Its unique character can't be beat. Except when you are listening to some of the best drumming in Belize!
