About June

Author Site Links:



Wife, Mother, Writer, Lunatic. Not necessarily in that order.


"There is a fine line between genius and crazy... I like to use that line as a jump rope!"

June, who prefers to go by Bug, was born in Philadelphia but moved to Maui, Hawaii when she was four. She met her “Prince Charming” on Kauai and is currently living “Happily Ever After” in Minnesota.

Her son and daughter are her greatest accomplishments. She takes pride in embarrassing them every chance she gets.

Being hopelessly addicted to 80's music is her superpower.


There is no cable TV in her home, but her second passion to books is movies. The Princess Bride, Notting Hill, Timeline, and a Knight's Tale can be found playing over and over again.

I'm the worst at promoting myself in every possible avenue there is. We've been in our house for 2 years - my neighbor just found out I write. Yeah... I suck at talking about "me."

So...I thought I should add to my "about me" page with what I do for a day job.

The site needs work - I'll get to it in-between sequels! - but you'll get the idea. If you want something engraved, we will do our best to accommodate you!

***we're not active anymore, but do still have the machine. I like making the impossible happen so write if you're desperate. ;) *****

MN authors I mention in interviews. Other than these 3 guys, all you'll catch me reading are my friends!

Yeah, I know. Killer logo! ;) That's my dog Otter. If I'm going to do something, it's going to be fun.

Just because people thought I couldn't top that, I named our wood engraving division.

Life is too short not to laugh! Give me a holler if you have any questions!


I've picked up an old hobby. We spend A LOT of time in the car.

This one is for a niece. It was so fun and by far, my favorite!

Saw him too...just gotta go again with a shirt to complete my "stalking" trifecta. :)

(Patterns by Yarn Geekery)



Great Product!

Killer name.


Get 'em.



One for my great nephew. I had to draw a few myself.

Others were perler bead patterns.

And one for my Grandson

(my own pattern)

And the other Grandson - Blippi!

(1st attempt at my own pattern)

I thought C2C would be a nightmare, but it's fun creating your own patterns.

I had help with the pattern here. I'm amazed how well it came out!

Finding free patterns rocks!

Pokemon for the kids! More will come.

Minon #1. (Minimal cussing required)

There's a "B" on his chest because he's MY minion. ;)

There was a theme going on here for a while...

And then hats.... One for my grandson for his fire truck kick.

And more just because.....

Now...a superhero kick. :)
