I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor / Behavior Analyst turned stay-at home Mommy, Writer, Speaker, and Writing/Publishing Coach.
I live in the Black Forest of Germany with my husband and children (two of whom are adopted through foster care). When I’m not writing or helping others become award-winning authors, I work as a Clinical Counselor for the local English-speaking community.
I am an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writer’s and Illustrators. I loved my time with the NorCal Region… and now am blessed by the Germany/Austria Region of SCBWI. I’ve attended the major conferences in Los Angeles, New York, and Paris… as well as a variety of regional events. I LOVE SCBWI!
Over the last twenty years, I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples through private practices, group homes, foster family agencies, community based services, and wrap-around programs. In addition, my husband and I have fostered multiple children over the last decade, in addition to adopting two and birthing two. My writing has appeared in newspapers, magazines, blog posts, children’s books, and books for adults.
