I'm a writer of children's books. My first book, The Lilac Princess, was published in 2014. My second is, A Turtle's Magical Adventure, published in 2016. My goal is to encourage children to be their best selves, to be a person of good character, not be a character. I also want to help parents and teachers as they help children grow into persons with good character. I have always written stories and poems from the time I was in Elementary School. It is my passion as well as being a Guidance Counselor at a local High School. I live with my husband and two Yorkies. My daughter, who was the inspiration for The Lilac Princess, is currently attending college.
