Here at Strong Words we believe everyone, of all ages, should feel good about themselves. Through journaling, writing short stories, novels, poems, and plays a person, young or old, can discover how full and rich they are, that you control your choices, when you put your mind to something magic happens, and dreams can come true. Believe in yourself. That's the trick.

I've wanted to be a writer since I was a child. I wrote my first novel at the age of 12. During high school biology class, instead of paying attention I wrote stories about being on tour with my favorite rock band. I don't recommend not paying attention in class! After college, I took a detour from writing and became an event planner and a professor. I knew it was time to take my writing seriously after my children were born. I learned my craft and my first middle grade novel will be out shortly.

I teach workshops on creative writing to elementary and middle school students.

For the past nine years I have been practicing yoga. Though I'm far from an expert, I will bring my lessons on the mat to Strong Words so we can all build a positive attitude and achieve our strongest desires.

Do you believe dreams can come true? Do you want to read books that take you on an adventure? Visit often. Drop a line, a positive word, maybe even a story of your own.
