I've been a history buff all my life reading biographies and history since grade school. Naturally, when I considered writing a story, my first thoughts turned toward historical fiction. My novels are set in America's Midwest and reflect my own Wisconsin farming roots.
My life has been the fulfillment of my girlhood dreams: becoming a Lutheran school teacher, marrying a pastor, and have lots of children. My life has taken me to both coasts (California and New Jersey) as I have followed my pastor-husband in his service to various churches with our four sons.
My husband of thirty-seven years, Rev. Charles Cortright, and I now live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he currently preparing for service as a missionary for the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod in Europe.
Our four sons are now married to wonderful Christian women. We have eight grandchildren who live from Madison, Wisconsin to Spokane, Washington to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to St. Louis, Missouri. We try to see most of them at least once a year and are very thankful for Skype and our computers!
I love reading books (especially historical romance as you could probably guess) and now, writing my own stories.
