My initial literary experience entailed studying Spanish literature and poetry at Hollins University. Since 2016, I have published eleven children's books that cater to all types of animals with a major focus on equines.  I use my writing as a way to enhance awareness and give back to areas of substantial and great need. Thus, I have elected projects that help our horses, environment, hunger, and species in need.  


In regards to my academic writing, I have executed a plethora of graduate research on cultural intelligence, organizational behavior, and strategic planning.  I serve as an indie publishing consultant and instructor,  ghostwriter,  and literacy programming specialist.  I have worked with over twenty libraries since 2016 for programs of all ages.  


I have also taught an array of subjects in English and Spanish  as a human resources manager in a variety of organizational cultures along with serving as a guest educator in the public school arena for several years. 

 My equine driven storybooks are inspired by my horses, and my quest to make a difference.   I elected to give back to the Gluck Center because I valued their mission and proven results toward helping our nation's horses. Thus, I donated a portion of my equine books' proceeds to Howe's  study on equine protozoal myeloencephalitis at the University of Kentucky Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center as I lost a treasured horse from this complex neurological disease. 


In 2020, I will be altering my equine welfare mission in order to raise awareness about

the wild horse issues that affect the West through marketing a special chapter book, The Lost Mustang  of Turquoise Canyon.

Snowflake Dreams supported the 2019 Aspen Snowmass Give A Flake Campaign.

I also shared this book through the Aspen Valley. I was so grateful for their support.

   Library Programs & Consulting Services

I offer innovative library reading programs that compliment my book's narratives along with writing workshops for all ages. Each program is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the library community and or arts center. Generally, they entail a book reading, language arts lesson and fun art activity. Program fee is based on program logistics and length of time.


Lastly, I specialize in the indie publishing process, and provide an array of packages that can help any author navigate through manuscript development, editing, connecting with graphic design services, electing the right publishing platform and or company,  marketing plans, along with important self-publishing logistics. 

If you are interested in a program and or consulting services, please contact me to discuss your needs. Testimonials from my clients are available upon request.
