I’m so glad you’re here. As I write this I’m sitting in my pajamas, frizzy bed hair tied up in something very loosely resembling a top knot (I haven’t quite mastered this supposedly “easy” updo), and trying to come up with a legit reason not to exercise today. This is life -my life- and my story. I’m a writer girl who loves Jesus, my family, and story.


My Hawaiian husband “GIJOE” brought a tradition into my life that I love. Talking “story”. It’s when friends, family, neighbors, whoever, gather and share life. Isn’t that awesome? That’s what I want to do with you. So grab your favorite drink (mine’s tea), pull up a chair (no judgement if you’re still wearing pajamas with a nest of tangled hair on top of your head), and let’s “talk story.”


I love staying in contact with my readers and my newsletter is a fun way to do that! Newsies get insider information on my books before anyone else PLUS access to exclusive giveaways just for you!!

About Natalie

My world revolves around GIJOE and our three adult (or almost adult) children who keep my life anything but predictable. Our boots hit the ground wherever the Army sends us but home is when we’re all together no matter the zipcode. My passion is writing stories where adventure meets love and share my belief that life rooted in purpose is a story worth telling.
