A bit more about me…

I’m near the Kansas City area, but love a good excuse for a road trip, especially for presenting encouragement and goal achievement methods to others!!

I have always incorporated writing into my day jobs; newsletters, web content, volunteer writer for articles or philanthropic outreach, employee achievement letters, etc. I have published articles, short stories, and poems. I’ve been a freelancer for such projects as product descriptions, restaurant review apps (taglines), career blogging, resumes, cover letters, customer appreciation email templates, and provided research for other authors. My creative outlet includes fiction, children’s story writing and research for my own novel writing ideas.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I wish you much success!

I’m also a gluten-free lover of food and baking, crafts, painting, and reading. Even though I’m not an expert in any field! I enjoy hobbies that allow me to be creative!

  1. What a wonderful person you are! And the funny thing is that until I got to the bottom of the page and saw your photo, I simply assumed you were a man. That says a lot about me, I think, and not necessarily good things either. But I am glad you are you. You have a wonderful smile. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m going to follow you!
