My childhood was spent as an avid I HATE READING hater! I’d rather play with my Barbies, Hot Wheels, and Legos. Growing up I watched M.S. (Multiple Sclerosis) take away my mom’s ability to live what most consider a normal life. She passed when I was only 15 years old.
Times changed…I hold a Master’s degree in Criminal Justice, an Associate degree & CCL in Early Childhood Education, and a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice/Criminology.
I work full time as a medical social worker with individuals from birth to 102 years old! I’ve been in case management for 5 years, prior I was a nanny for 8 years, and worked with special needs preschoolers. I’v been a writer for 12 years.
What do I write? Everything from children’s to adult stories, from fiction to non-fiction. I specialize in “up-lit” which is a newly recognized genre featuring kindness, humor, joy, hope, compassion and heroism.
I was born in California, raised in Washington, and now reside in Arizona. I write because: to write, is to listen, to everyone, including yourself.
