My Story

I was born in the Appalachian Mountains of Southern West Virginia. As one of eight children, I grew up in a place called Zach’s Branch Hollow. My Father was a Coal Miner and a Pastor. My Mother was a full time homemaker. 

I hold a Masters and a Bachelor Degree in Ministerial Studies with concentration in Christian Leadership.

I am an Ordained Minister, Bible Teacher, Author and Publisher. 

I have been a Christian Leader for most of my Ministry Career, serving as Teacher, Assistant and Co-Pastor.

I am the Author of “The Goslin’ Drowner.” It is the first book of the Appalachian Mountain Series.

I have been married to Dr. Steven Kuhlke for thirty-five years. We have two sons and one daughter-in-law, who live in Portland, Oregon. 

I love reading biographies, experimental gardening, catching up with old friends and making new ones.
