Her recent experiences as a high school substitute teacher make her uniquely qualified to translate obscure adolescent dialects into understandable English. Along with the Miss Prentice Mysteries, she is the author of a Christian romance novella, The Applesauce War in the anthology Harvest Home from Barbour Books).
