About Me

I have always loved writing and editing! As a 20-year professional, I have enjoyed so many things and have very much appreciated the opportunity to enjoy such a fabulous career.

I began as an entrepreneur, doing freelance writing work. I enjoyed writing articles and educational materials, but soon went on to write books and edit the works of others, too. 

By the late '90s, I was hired as the Managing Editor and Head Writer for Big Idea Productions. Within a year I moved into the position of Publishing Director and successfully built their book and curriculum department from the ground up. I later moved on to do the same for Exclaim Entertainment.

After both of those rewarding experiences in addition to having publishing 75 of my own books, over 20 curriculum projects, and countless articles, scripts, and website content, I returned to freelance writing and editing. I have and continue to enjoy that thoroughly to this day.

I also enjoy a very active speaking career. I have spoken to audiences of 10 to 10,000 as a Keynote Speaker or Workshop Leader. I speak on many topics,  including the family, family values, educational themes, writing and publishing, inspirational messages, faith, being an entrepreneur, time management, ways to save money, and even lots of fun topics like crafting ideas, games, volleyball, camping, party planning, travel, and hiking! The reason I choose to speak on those topics because that's where my experience lies. 

I spend a great deal of time with children, parents, and educational institutions. I enjoy having fun, although most people likely see me as more serious. That's probably because I always seem to have a pen in hand or a computer at my side.

I believe life provides daily opportunities -- but it's up to us to reach out and grab them. I don't want to miss out on anything!
