WHAT DO YOU WRITE ABOUT?
I write puppy stories for young children, (referred to as picture books by publishers), written with the purpose of exemplifying the Golden Rule. My puppy stories are based on true stories. Honey, the large dog in the photo of our canine buddies, is the inspiration for writing puppy stories.
WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR PUPPY STORIES?
When my first puppy story is published, it will be available from online retailers as well as brick and mortar stores – stay tuned!
WHY DID YOU BECOME A WRITER?
It’s my gift and it's what I love to do. I believe we are all born with a specific gift, a natural ability that when honed, makes life value-added for all involved, and satiates the need for purpose. I love to write stories that offer readers hope, encouragement, and inspiration.
WHEN DID YOU BEGIN TO WRITE?
I wrote in journals from a very young age. Writing is my go-to for expressing joy, sorrow, and everything in between. Around the age of nine, I wrote my fist short story about our family pet, Chico the bolter - it was more of an epitaph, as he was hit and killed by a car during his last adventure.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS?
Too numerous to list, but the ones that come to mind at the moment: Joy Budensiek; Beatrix Potter; E.B.
