I am the author of two novels, a children’s chapter book series and the widely-read Insanity Blog; all of which have been met with predominantly favorable reviews. I also wrote a popular health and wellness column for the local newspaper. Although able to write many genres, I tend to lean toward creative writing, whenever possible, with a good dash of humor. With that said, no genre is off-limits. I’m an excellent typist as well as proofreader. With deadlines, a tumbling economy and everything that’s demanded of us in this world, I like to keep things fun, as well as professional, whenever the work allows for such.
