ARDIE’S BOOKS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON

The highlight of Ardie’s writing is the RJ Series.  RJ’s Journey, RJ’s Valley, and RJ’s Legacy are historical fiction that ages 9 to 109 will enjoy. Research, travel, personal experiences, and faith in Jesus all played a vital role in the crafting of this powerful story of one young woman’s life and those around her she loved.
