About the Author
My short story, Break Time, and poetry has been featured in Mind’s Eye literary magazine. The Kansas Writers Association published my short story, Existing Forces, appointing me as a noted author. I have held a deep passion for writing since early childhood, but a brush with death caused me to allow it to grow. I'm part of an SCBWI critique group in Lawrence, KS and two local book clubs. I attend many writers’ conferences including the New York Pitch, Penned Con, New Letters, All Write Now, Show Me Writers Master Class, and Nebraska Writers Guild conference as well as Book Fairs and Comic-Cons. I am a member of the deaf and hard of hearing community. I'm familiar with the dedication involved to be successful in the publishing industry as I am a literary agent.
