My writing roots

Stories are so important to our culture, our lives and our spirit. A storyteller at an early age, I brought stories to my pupils in fourth grade, and later to my own children and grandchildren. 

I have written for and edited a magazine for our local Arthritis Foundation, have written opinion pieces for my local paper, and articles on Senior Fitness.

I also volunteer as a grant writer for a local school.

My style

I listen to what topics affect kids and adults and plan my writing around those ideas. An adopted dog, a shoe on the side of the road, a sock lost in the dryer are all picture book topics. My new project is a Young Adult mystery book .

Dugan The Dog Who Said, "Mom" is available from




ISBN: 978-1-4808-4049-2
