What inspires you to write?
My love of writing started early as I wrote speeches for the 4-H Club and Toastmasters Club. I think I write to discuss real world educational and parenting issues.
Tell us about your writing process.
I have been working full time in education as a school psychologist and early childhood educator so I have to write in
short segments. For many years, I would just write a page a day during my lunch break.
What advice would you give other writers?
I think I would tell other writers to jot down any little idea or small concept and those ideas can help when they have writer’s block.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Years ago, I just started submitting books to publishers and received many rejection letters. One day a publisher called me and said he liked my work and his traditional academic press published several of my books. Like many times in the publishing world the company was sold and they were no longer interested in my writing style. I have since focused with a more independent approach to publishing where I can use many people to accomplish a publication and not just one publishing company.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I love the changing nature of publishing and how writers are in more control of their writings.
What genres do you write?: Nonfiction, Educational, Research and Parenting
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
