The name for my blog, The Seashells of Life, has many meanings, much like the similarities and differences of seashells…like life they are cherished, broken, rough, and discovered.

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’sauthor button degree in Criminal Justice, an Associate degree & CCL in Early Childhood Education, and a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice/Criminology. My thesis paper was on effects and affects of early childhood education and juvenile delinquency.

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.
