About The Author

My mother was a talented writer. I dreamed of being a writer like her, so I started writing poetry when I was ten years old. I attended the University of Northwestern in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in English with a Writing Emphasis. But, Northwestern is no ordinary institution. We were also required to have a major in Bible. This has served me well as I have prayerfully stepped forward in the calling on my life.

When dealing, as I do, with Spiritual Warfare and topics that are on the edges of fringe, it is very important that you know who you are receiving information from, and what their belief system is. I’ve listed the courses I took below so that you the readers can have confidence in my biblical education which is a solid foundation for both my life and my writing. Even though I am writing and researching topics the average American church ignores or denounces, I come at them from a bedrock of scripture and an intimate relationship with the God of the Bible.

I believe I’m called to address these issues that plague so many believers and non-believers alike, shining light in the darkness, providing scriptural tools and weapons helping them to break free from the dark ties that bind, and leading the unsaved to Jesus.
