About

I am delighted that you are here at my website. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a former medical professional – turned to writing. I have two published books that started my career last year.

I am married and have a son.

I love to read as well as write.

My dream since the 8th grade has been to write, yet I ended up as a medical professional, enjoying a career as an RN in public health – human services -as a school nurse.

I love antiques and once owned an antique business with my husband – as a side career.

As my life goes on I realize that sometimes dreams and desires get thwarted or rearranged and we end up miles from where we thought we were headed. Life is always changing, and with each new adventure we find our gifts and talents also changing. That has been my case, and it’s a process that is still going on.

The time between the antique business and the present, I worked as a freelance marketing writer. My modest success with that venture encouraged authorship and a chance to realize the dream I had back in the 8th grade – to be a published author. I’ve yet to announce that I am truly successful, but I am enjoying the journey, and thanking God for it.

P.S. I love dogs, and this guy here reminds me of my exhaustion when I burn the night oil.
