About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Writer ~ & President of NFP
Location Springfield, Missouri, United States
Introduction DREAD THE FRED and THROWAWAY CHILD are available from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, Kindle, NOOK, or ask any bookstore to order. All three books - FRED, THROWAWAY, and the bilingual (English-Spanish) CUPCAKE PUPPY are also available from the author. About my bio: January, 2011 I received an opportunity that is most exciting. I'm the Regional Advisor for SCBWI-Missouri, working with amazing, brilliant writers in Missouri and also worldwide. In 2014, I retired (again) to do creative writing of fiction and nonfiction MG, YA, Adult - and grant writing for my NFP. To "give back" to my community, in 2005 I founded a 501 (c)(3)company. It seemed the right thing to do ~ I'm doing fund-raising and writing grants to help Alzheimer's patients.
