Naomi writes from the pristine north woods of Wisconsin where she and husband Jeff live as epically as God allows on a ramshackle farm near their five young adults and three grand-children. Amidst it, she writes about imperfect people who are finding hope and faith to overcome their struggles, whether the story venue is rich in American history, or along more contemporary lines.
Central to her stories is the belief that God blesses messes, and He delights in turning lives around. For that same reason, besides her fiction writing, Naomi spent five years on the editorial board of the Midwestern Christian newspaper, Living Stones News, writing true accounts of changed lives. She continues to enjoy writing for magazines and other non-fiction venues which encourage homeschooling families and young writers. While pursuing her fiction-writing endeavors, she spent a year as an editor with Port Yonder Press.
