A Kansas City native, I grew up in a military family and eventually served 8 years in the United States Army Reserve. Now, I still get to honor that pivotal time in my life by serving as Prose Editor for Veteran's Voices magazine.
An author, poet, blogger, and host of the FearlessINK podcast, my work has been featured in the Sun Times, Military Brat Life, The National Library of Poetry and various on-line publications, including Nia Magazine, Permission to Write, and Resolute Magazine.
I've been teaching and writing for over a decade. I find tremendous joy in being able to share my knowledge and experience with others. As a former radio show host, I've had the opportunity to speak to diverse audiences addressing real-life issues.
Currently, living at peace in the Los Angeles area.
