I am a Storyteller.

Always the dreamer, wanting to see beyond the ordinary world of my life, I write stories to stretch the horizon. My aim is to expand your idea of what might be possible and perhaps help you know yourself a little deeper than before.

Read this historical novel about a girl named Clare from 1894 who lives in an alley shack in Chicago's poorest ward. She sews buttons and hems for Mr. Jones, the sweat boss, and only has a few pennies left to buy bread. Her mother has gone away. Clare doesn't know where or when she's coming back, but she is about to stumble upon a mystery that could change her life forever. It all begins with Simmie, her doll, and a taffy tin full of secrets.
