Inspired by Facts

A teacher once dubbed me an “information giver” and I’ve lived up to his assessment ever since. I love reading and then sharing what I’ve learned. What better way to do this than through my own writing—one reader at a time?

I write for all ages, both fiction and nonfiction, and on a variety of topics, including history, science, nature and the environment, law and society, self-esteem, and social issues. My school and library programs blend a love of learning, natural curiosity, and interest in nature, science, and history to engage the audience through activities and literacy exercises.

I grew up in Michigan in a family of 8 children and I spent a lot of time reading as a child. It was no surprise to my family when I showed a flair for making up stories and putting on puppet plays for the neighborhood. I think I always knew I’d grow up to write books. At least, that was my plan, from about grade 4 on.

That’s me in the background reading a book before bedtime.

I also spent a great deal of time playing in the creek and exploring the outdoors. Spending time with nature is still one of my hobbies. I grew up around lakes, so swimming was a common pastime. It still is, only I now enjoy it from my home in Florida. I also enjoy canoeing, bird watching, gardening, camping, hiking, and photographing nature and wildlife. The trees, flowers, birds, insects, and sunshine inspire me. Since most of my writing is nonfiction, my creative well is refilled whenever I’m outside.

A nearly 30-year publishing veteran; author of 30 books and over 1500 published articles, I balance my time among teaching grammar refresher courses and writing workshops in south Florida, working with children through arts enrichment programs, and writing fiction and nonfiction. I most enjoy writing about history, psychology, health and wellness, children's literature, learning styles, literacy, the natural sciences, and the environment. I grew up in Michigan where I enjoyed camping, boating, hiking, photographing the outdoors, and researching historical topics. I now enjoy these activities from my home in Florida. Of course, I'm also an avid reader of fantasy, SF, mysteries, and historical fiction as well as biographies and history. I received my B.A. in English Language from Eastern Michigan University and my M.S. in Post-Secondary and Adult Education from Capella University.
