I have worn many hats in my 25 years as a professional communicator, from public relations writer and television host to stand-up comedienne and educator. I am the author of two books, Falling Flesh Just Ahead…and other signs on the road to midlife, and the Amazon #1 bestseller My Pineapples Went to Houston—Finding the Humor in My Dashed Hopes, Broken Dreams and Plans Gone Outrageously Awry. I have also authored a chapter in the bestselling books, The Divinity of Dogs, and Feisty After 45. I am a blogger for The Huffington Post and my work has appeared on several other websites.

My kids have all grown and flown the coop.They are on three different continents and are way too far away to please me, but apparently, they think they have a right to live their own lives! I live in suburban Atlanta with my husband and dog.
