For ten years, I was a technical and scientific writer for the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, where I enjoyed telling the story of how products were developed for cleaner energy production and what scientists are really like, as well as the Department of Justice. I continued my career by starting my own business to help writers become authors.
An author myself, I have written six books: four in middle grade fiction, one chick lit, and one children’s lit, all self-published. I am also the executive editor and a contributor for the quarterly publication Inspiring Lives Magazine. I am a member and secretary of the Global Sisterhood and a board member for Passages and Prose: A Gathering of Authors.
I work out of my home office in Washington, Pa., a city just south of Pittsburgh and north of Morgantown, W.Va. I’m the proud mommy of two little girls, and I’m a fashionista and craft junkie who loves dry wit. My favorite books don’t have pictures—I love Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, Wilkie Collins’ No Name, and Christopher Paolini’s Eragon Cycle, among many others.
