Illinois Connection

I tend to write what I know - that means I tend to lean toward writing about small town, Central Illinois. As a writer of Christian/Horror/Fiction, that also means I take liberties with real towns, areas and urban legends, and also create fictional ones.

Biographical and Professional Information

Born in Urbana, Illinois, I was raised in Camargo, Illinois for most of my youth attending the Villa Grove school system, where I graduated from high school in 1970. Over the course of time, I took classes at Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois in subjects pertaining to my current needs. Married 33 years, to Larry Trudeau, I have one son and two granddaughters.

I didn't begin my writing carrier until 1997, two years after the suicide of my youngest brother. It was then, that I discovered writing as my source of healing and a gift from God. I worked on my first novel, "BLOODLINE: The Glass Heart," while writing, as a columnist, for "The Villa Grove News." I stayed with the newspaper for 10 years then quit to pursue the writing I love best - Christian/Horror/Fiction novels.

Currently, when I'm not writing, I'm Peace Meal Site Supervisor, and Activity Director at the Villa Grove Senior Center, and I volunteer as a site moderator for
