“If you wish to be a writer; write!” – Epictetus the Greek philospher
I agree 100% with Epictetus so in June 2011, after 25 + years at the same job, I decided to take a leap of faith, quit the safety of a “regular” job, and pursue a full-time career in writing. You see, writing was a passion that I rediscovered after enrolling into college many, many, many years after graduating from highschool. I’ve always heard, it’s never too late. Well, it’s not! So, after 10 years of studying, I reaped the rewards of hard work and determination and received a degree in Professional Writing. Today, graduation day remains on my Top 10 List of Happiest Days of My Life.
When I think about writing, I get happy. My brain kicks into overdrive and the ideas flow freely like Niagara Falls! That’s what brings me here!
My main writing focus is Children’s Books – all categories of Children’s Books – Picture Books, Early Reader Chapter Books, and Middle Grade Books. You can see what I’m working on by clicking the WORKS IN PROGRESS tab above. My first children’s book released March 2016 titled, “Batina’s Best First Day.” It is the first in, “The Tooth Collector Fairies Series.” It was picked up by Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center and is being made into a musical to be performed by children ages 7-14. It will premier KVPAC which is located in Katy, Texas, October 21 & 22. After the performance, it will be cataloged and become available for performed anywhere in the United States. You can learn more about this book on The Tooth Collector Fairies website.
I also write a motorcycle tips and trips guide for women blog called Motorcycle Momma Blog. It includes instructional video clips, as well.
These blogs can be accessed through this website by clicking the OTHER BLOGS tab at the top of this page or by clicking the above related icons.
On a personal note, I am happily married to my husband Frank. We live with our furry companions, Jak Tuff Kat and his new side kick, Jillian Bean. Our cat son Junior Bunior a/k/a Boo passed away at the early age of 4. He was born with a hole in his heart that could not be repaired. Although his life was short, he brought us great joy. We also have 4 grown kids and 7 grandkids. For excitement, my husband and I travel all over the country on our motorcycles, when we’re not chillin’ at the beach in Port Aransas, TX.
