The Door In The Willow is the story of a ten year old girl and four other children who find themselves together due to traumatic circumstances.  The main character is the oldest of the five and the one who seems to be suffering the most.  A supernatural element comes into play and the adults are left wondering as to what is real.  None of the characters are still children by the end of the book. 

 This is a story of strength in the midst of fear and hope when circumstances seem hopeless.  

The book is very short and can be used as a tool; by having conversations about the story, people of all ages can realize that sharing their experiences can open a door of healing and hope for themselves as well. 

 If The Door In The Willow goes into a second printing, I will make it available once again.  Thank you for your interest.
Take care of yourself and contact me, if you'd like.  


Thanks to those who came out to see us at Artists & Authors on July 9th at Puskas Party Center and at the book signing at Elyria Art Works Gallery.  It was also nice to be at the Avon Library with other authors, meeting folks.  I enjoyed speaking with you and hope to see you at future events.  Here's what's on the schedule:

The last time I was out to meet the public was once in late October.  I was happy to have sold some art, but I feel a great need to refrain from scheduling engagements, and instead, to focus on creating new works.  I have a vision and am very excited to see it to fruition.  I have only begun some sketches and have been researching my subject matter, but now plan to get busy on the actual project; it is my focus now until it is finished.

I hope to have an on-line store up and running in the near future; if not before the end of the year, then early in the new year.  Please be patient with me. 

Thank you for visiting my site.  Please go to my contact page and say hello.  I'll be happy to hear from you.  Until then,  remember, Jesus Loves you

This is Maggie.  We are so blessed to have had such a faithful friend, filled with unconditional love.  She was physically tiny yet considered herself a huge guard dog and stood at attention if she thought something was amiss :)
