Where do I get my ideas?

I turn off my T.V. and listen to my inner voice. Try it yourself sometime.

People often ask why I haven't written about the men in my family. Actually I have. My brother, father, grandfather, even Uncle Vova, and my son, Steven, is in the Keeping Quilt. He and his wife, Leah, posed for the characters in the book "A Christmas Tapestry"!

What do I do during my time off? Actually I'm always working on some project or another, either around my farm or at my studio. I enjoy taking my animals for walks around the property and taking long drives on the back roads of Michigan. I can even be found on my Harley Davidson from time to time!
