Some of those dreams led her to make her home in the wilds of Idaho. Some led her through a variety of careers including firefighting and emergency services. But other dreams (and nightmares) gradually found their way into print. She has been privileged to work on Why Not?, Tiger on the Storm, Korean War, Untold Stories from Iraq and Afghanistan, Worst Case Scenario: Outbreak, Hero by Force, and other projects currently in development such as The Real Women of the US Military.
