About Me

Two years ago I was the recipient of the Missouri SCBWI mentorship and reworked my novel, THE WORMY BEAN WINTER, based on the insights of children's author, Leslie J. Wyatt. It is a middle-grade multicultural novel based on real-life events of my Finnish American family who immigrated to the South Dakota prairie from Finland and is set in l919. I am finally done "tweaking" the manuscript and I'm now ready to submit.                               

In addition to having articles or stories published in a dozen magazines (mostly about my "Special" Sunday School students), my daughter, Jana Segal, and I received two first place awardsin the children's short screenplay divisions (Santa Clarita International Film Festival and Moondance International Film Festival) for our screenplay, MODEL T BISCUITS. It was adapted from my middle-grade novel of the same name.    I                                                                                                                                              

 I am very thankful to the many fellow writers who encourage me!
