Lake Girl Publishing is the imprint home of

all kinds of creativity with a purpose!

We are a husband and wife team. I do the creative stuff, the writing, voice work, and art, and my husband Ray is the technical side of our company—formatting and keeping us on the rails of the many details that come with a publishing company. (That's our wedding photo from 1978!)


Book publishing is the newest addition to Lake Girl Publishing. Our novels are set on magical Mackinac Island. Piper Penn's story begins in Being Ethel (In a world that loves Lucy), the first book in the series. The stand-alone sequel is Being Dorothy (In a world longing for home), where Piper meets a mysterious couple of the porch of the Grand Hotel. In Being Alice (In a world lost in the looking glass) Alice has a disfigured face and a hard life. Find out how she ends up as the music tech for rockstar J.D. Grayling at the Grand Hotel. These are clean stories filled with mystery, romance, friendship, faith, and quirky characters. It's a virtual trip to Mackinac Island in 1979, 1980, and 1981.

With my long and storied background in marketing and advertising, it’s a dream come true to add “author” to the things I’ve always wanted to do!  


We are all about Fueling Faith with Fiction! My media bio sheet can be found here. 



With all the new stuff happening, I want you to know I can still be of service in the areas where I have tons of experience. Check out my voice demos to get a sampling of the wide variety of voice work I have done across the country and internationally. Do you need just the right voice for your next project?  I’ve also written in every medium under the sun for many years, including print, audio, video, and of course —web and social media. Let’s connect if I can be of assistance to you in that arena.

I get so excited about watercolor and mixed medium and seeing what happens when the pen and the brush hit the paper! Check out my art—kind of on the whimsical side, don’t you think? Let me know if you’d like to talk about a piece hanging in your favorite place.

It’s time to share “life” with you including funny moments, cool little things that bring a smile for no reason, and the pursuit of faith with an awesome Father, Son, and, Holy Spirit who love hanging out with us earth people. What could be better than that?


Thank you for going on this journey with us. You coming along will make it even better. Don’t forget to let me know more about you through our connection page. There's a FREE page of artwork when you sign up on my connection page. Speaking of connecting, you have to be my friend and “liker” on Twitter, Instagram , Facebook.  It wouldn’t be the same without you!
