Welcome to My Site! I Hope You Enjoy Your Visit My mission statement: I am not living only to exist, but to add to the world in the unique way that only I can -- to fulfill my purpose, to serve, to create a ripple effect.
I believe that everyone should follow their dream and passion as it is their calling. Mine happens to be writing -- especially writing for children. I also believe that stories have the power to impact a person's life and change the direction of his/her journey. I believe that words are powerful enough to make or break a person't spirit which inevitably affects that person's actions and future. Sometimes, all you need is a good word. The right word . . . to soar!
I hope kids will be touched by my stories in some way, but more importantly, I want to inspire them to dream big and work hard on their dreams!
I had a tough childhood, a rough road to publication, and no support for the most part. I've encountered many naysayers over the years, listened to many mockers, and almost gave up many times. Yet, despite numerous detours and failures, I persevered, because next to being a mom, nothing else felt as right or fulfilling as the way crafting my stories did.
I am still working on my dream every day.
Please look around and find out more about me, my books, and my work. Thanks for visiting! * * * Meet Willy, a curious, active bear cub who likes butterflies, berries, skipping and tumbling.
