Family Recipe: Sweet and saucy stories, essays, and poems about family life is exactly that–a short anthology about my life and family. 

“Normally Dysfunctional”–the title of the first piece in this collection–summarizes what families are all about. Contrary to Tolstoy, every family–happy or sad–resembles every other. Family Recipe contains something to bring a memory and a smile to every reader’s heart.

As one Amazon reviewer said, "This is a 'feel-good' book and one that can easily be read in a single sitting. A 'must' for relaxation and escapism."

I have also had short works published in the following anthologies and magazines:

  • Several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, including

    • All in the Family (both as Theresa Hupp and under a pseudonym)

    • Shaping the New You

    • Parenthood

    • The Multitasking Mom's Survival Guide (under a pseudonym)

  • A Bad Hair Day, an anthology published by Mozark Press

  • Volume 8 of Kansas City Voices magazine, published by Whispering Prairie Press.

And coming soon . . .

I am hard at work on another novel about travel along the Oregon Trail, which I hope to publish in the spring of 2018. I'll post about this book when I have updates.
