My Story

Thank you for visiting our website! We are very excited that She-Bear's story can finally be told. 

This has been a labor of love, during which there have been frustrations and setbacks, but now it's really happening! Yay!

My life has been full and varied: writer, editor, teacher, goat rancher, community theater enthusiast, speaker with Toastmasters...and of course, a mother and grandmother. It was following the death of my youngest son, Adam, in 2000 at the age of 16, that the idea for She-Bear came to me. So the story is especially near and dear to my heart. I hope you enjoy it!

Other books are Baaad Sheep - When God's People Let You Down and Fully Relying on God by Shirley Veltman (as told to).
