I am thrilled that you’re here! Whether you’re a reader, fellow writer or cancer survivor (or all three!), it is a honor to connect with you.

I am passionate about storytelling, which isn’t surprising since I grew up in a world surrounded by the incredible stories of my father, Louis L’Amour. My dad gave me the greatest gift; that of the love of language and storytelling, which opened up an entire universe of possibilities. I began spinning my own tales as soon as I could write.

Over the course of my writing career, I discovered a passion for passing along the many lessons learned, much like my father did for me. It’s an honor to connect with so many inspired people – and so many unforgettable, meaningful stories.

Welcome!
