I am a 56-year-old wife, mother of three and grandmother of seven beginning a new career doing something I have always wanted to do — writing Middle Grade books.

My former careers include Chief of Staff to a Michigan State Senator, non-profit director, business owner, trainer and public relations professional.

I am currently acting as a business/non-profit/government/faith-based entity consultant, assisting the areas of public relations, strategic planning, board development, conflict resolution, communications and customer service.

Personally, I am a determined, devoted individual who works hard and loves to laugh.  I live with my husband of 26 years and my yellow lab, Wookie.
