Rogier_van_der_Weyden_-_Virgin_and_Child_(Durán_Madonna)_-_Prado_P02722In addition to being a homeschooling mother of six, I am the author of After the Fall, a novel published by Bezalel Books. After the Fall is a “spiritual thriller” that investigates the real and powerful influence of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the life of a (martyr) priest and on the lives of his parishioners. It is set in Sweden, a natural choice for me as I am a “natural” Swede.

I am also the co-compiler of The Three Crowns: The Seven Joys, the Seven Sorrows, and the Seven Glories of Mary, a book of meditations from the writings of the popes, saints, and mystics, centered on the form of the rosary prayed by the Franciscans of the Immaculate, featuring art masterpieces through the centuries. It is published by the Academy of the Immaculate.

I am also a regular contributor to the Missio Immaculatae International, a magazine published by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in the United States, and a sometime contributor to the Homiletic & Pastoral Review, “America’s foremost pastoral publication, since 1900.” The titles of my articles are as follows.
