Dee and her husband, Norm, live in the Phoenix, Arizona area and have been married for 39 years. They have two grown sons, two daughters-in-law, five grandchildren, and two on the way. She is a retired primary school teacher. She enjoys riding motorcycles, traveling, snorkeling, and flying. One of her greatest dreams, even though she knows it will never happen, is to swim with a whale. She also wants to visit Israel, to walk where her Savior walked, to touch the stone walls that He touched.
Dee loves to read and write fantasy stories. She has several ideas for books for young adults and middle school age readers. She wants to write books that inspire and encourage readers to seek what is true, what is right, even if it is hard to do and to be honest with others and themselves. Dee believes that fantasy books can inspire and encourage readers.
A story had been growing in Dee’s head for several years. The scenes and characters played through her mind growing, coming alive, until one morning in July 2009 she had to sit down and put it on paper. Now that story is finished, and she is waiting for a publisher.
The characters decided that one book was not enough for them to live their lives, so Dee is currently working on the next book in the three book series. Dee has many characters and ideas for books tucked away in a ‘box’ waiting to escape and live their lives on paper.
