What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Find what you have a passion for, what brings you joy and write about it. The more you enjoy what you are writing the more others will love and appreciate it as your joy will shine through the pages.
I have been an avid reader since I was a young child – happily sacrificing TV and playtime in order to read a good book. I have been capturing observations, feelings and events in poems and stories since middle school. As I have grown older, I continued to write and create stories to entertain family and friends and to help celebrate life’s special moments.
For many years I suffered from symptoms that went undiagnosed. After years of suffering and searching for answers, I was finally diagnosed several years ago with Fibromyalgia and some other underlying conditions. With a well-rounded, holistic treatment plan I am feeling better and living a more active and joyous life.
I am passionate about education in all formats. Since 1999 my professional career has focused on the design and development of training for employees across industries and educational formats. I have specialized in analyzing the need for training and assessing the best method for training and delivery (classroom, live virtual training, blended, web-based training, etc). My writing skills assisted me in delivering solutions that engaged learners and translated to application on the job.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Organizational Development and Human Resource development as well as my Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
I live in Kansas with my husband, teenage son and our two gorgeous, ornery and energetic Scottie pups (Conner and Zoe). In my spare time I enjoy photography, spending time with family and friends, and traveling around the world with family.
I am always excited to hear from readers. Please join me on my website or Facebook page. I look forward to hearing from you!
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
At the end of 2012, we added two new scottish terrier puppies to our family. While my husband has a lot of experience with puppies, my son and I have never had the privilege of living with puppies – dogs, but not puppies. We soon discovered there is a big difference between an adult dog and new puppies! Our experiences as we adjusted to our new additions, the comedy of our errors and the joy and love they brought us over the ensuing weeks is what is reflected in this book.
