My journey into the writing world began late in 2011 after a brush with cancer. It was a wake-up call that challenged me to seriously pursue my dream of writing when I retired. I began by taking a Writer’s Digest course, “Finding Time to Write,” that convinced me that I do have talent worth developing and that I absolutely could find the time to write. After additional study, my first short story, “That’s Just the Way It Is” was published in September, 2013, followed by a sequel, “Return to Texas,” in March, 2014.
Previously, I have worked as a social worker, therapist and administrator in the areas of child welfare, disabilities, as well as in the fields of individual and family therapy. I have also enjoyed professional time as an astrologer and as the owner of an internet business that sold a variety of chocolate products. I am spiritual, love to travel and my favorite place in the world is Italy. Many of these areas are reflected in my writing.
Although in the past I have written a great deal in connection with my professional activities, entering the world of fiction was totally new to me. I have found that I love the freedom and magic of this creative process. Currently, I’m working on a novel, Trip to a Lifetime, to be published in 2016.
I hope you will join with me on my pathway through this fascinating world of writing and publication. My blog will keep you up to date on my writing progress and provide some food for thought in the areas of psychology, spirituality, travel and writing.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you’ll check back often.
