I am often asked, "What haven't you done?" It's a fair question as I have been a teacher, baker, retailer, real estate agent, customer service rep, coach, mommy...the list goes on. All of it has been of a grand design allowing me into the lives of a variety of people so that I might be allowed to tell their stories. Over the years, I have told hundreds of stories.
Throughout my half-century, I have been a writer in one capacity or another. Whether my role was as a student, teacher, publisher, editor, videographer, or writer, I have always told stories. Living and working in a vast array of settings, using detective skills, asking the right questions...and really listening to the answers, are all a part of the formula for producing great work.
