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, speaking, sketchdoodling 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!)

Check out my Etsy site with artwork and signed books.

Here's my media info. Let's connect!

Take a moment and listen to my interview about being a Paper Missionary...writing, art, doodling, and voice. 

New! Abundant Living Podcast Interview!


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. And Being Wendy (In a world afraid to grow up)...50 year old Wendy is about to find out who is trying to undermine her glamorous LA life as a famous author. Latest! Being Nancy (In a world lost in mystery) - for anyone who grew up loving Nancy Drew! These are clean stories filled with mystery, romance, friendship, faith, and quirky characters. It's a virtual trip to Mackinac Island in 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, and 1983.

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



Check out my voice demos to get a sampling of the wide variety of voice work I have done across the country and internationally. 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'm a speaker/sketchdoodler/ many applications... go see! 

Check out my art—kind of on the whimsical side, don’t you think? Head to my Etsy site for all kinds of creative including hand-painted earrings.

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!
