My love of reading began with Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew.  Other early favorites:  Johnny Tremaine, A Wrinkle in Time.  Lately, I've discovered the Victorian Anthony Trollope.  I also like Henry James.  Modern aurhors I enjoy:  John LeCarre, Michael Connelly.

My portolio mostly includes essays about growing up in Minnesota.

I now e-publish as Leni Ramberg.  My middle grade mystery novel GIRLFRIEND DETECTIVES: The Missing Photo Mystery is available for Kindles, Nooks and other e-readers.

And check out A CLOWN DOG'S CHRISTMAS.. available for e-readers and also in paper on Amazon.com.  The perfect Christmas gift for dog lovers of all ages.
