Long version of who I am:
I am a Christian homeschooling mom who stays busy. I enjoy volunteering, serving as the Children’s Ministry Director at my church, gardening, playing games, and spending time with my family.
Of course, I also enjoy reading and writing!
When I was child, I enjoyed writing mostly poems. I still have poems I wrote when I was 12 years old. Please don’t ask me to show them to you, though!
I briefly thought of becoming an author but never pursued the option because I thought becoming an author was comparable to me becoming a pro football player (needless to say, impossible). Many years later, after much encouragement (or should I say pressure?) from my sister, husband, and daughters, I finally decided to take on the challenge of creating books to publish. Thus began what I have been calling “my writing adventure.”
I have had a lot of fun learning as much as I can about writing, editing, and publishing. I am definitely still learning!
Since beginning my writing adventure, I have published Jobs of a Preschooler, Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles, and Aah! Blown Away, Crash!: An Alphabet Misadventure (which was illustrated by my daughter when she was 12-years-old). All three books received a Readers’ Favorite 5 Stars review, and Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles was chosen for the 2019 Read Across Connecticut Program.
In addition to that, I enjoy writing about parenting, homeschooling, ways to save money, and simple crafts/projects to do at home.
My writings have been published in various places in print and online including in the Clubhouse Magazine, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Money Saving Mom, a Fine Parent, and Hands On As We Grow, where I am currently a monthly contributor. (You can see a list of where my writings have been published here if you’d like.) I have also been mentioned or quoted on Moneyish, Inc., Hello Giggles, The Epoch Times, U.S. News and more, and I have created some courses, which can be viewed here.
I would definitely prefer to be the one behind the camera (or phone) taking pictures, but below is another picture of me in front of a camera.
Speaking of cameras, I had the pleasure of presenting my book Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles live on the news. I was completely out of my comfort zone, but it was an amazing experience for me and my family (who got to watch the interview filmed live).
My writing adventure has also given me the opportunity to celebrate National Pickle Day, do library presentations, library storytimes, and a Barnes & Noble story time, serve as a Regional Social Chair for SCBWI IA (from 2017-2021), attend multiple conferences, teach a publishing class at a local community college, present webinars, and more.
More recently, I have been focusing my attention on editing. I currently serve as a Copyeditor for BiblioKid Publishing and the Editing Coordinator for SchoolhouseTeachers.com. I’m excited to see where my writing adventure will lead me next.
Well, I’ve rambled on long enough! Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Sign up for my email list at the bottom of this page if you would like to receive e-newsletters that includes sneak peeks and updates on my writings. Thank you for visiting. May you have a wonderful day!
