My granson, only minutes old! I used to think the Infinite was a place in azure clouds surrounded by angels.  Now, I know my truth.  I touch infinity every time I help a child.  When he sees his uniqueness, when she sees her ability, they can reach into the hearts of their children to do the same.  Like the reflection of opposing mirrors, generation upon generations will open their gifts for their times.  Though I will not live to see them, perhaps some will discover my writing, a slip of a poem, a fragmented song, or a character who trembles with fear and overcomes.  If so, then I will live forever.

A published poet, technical writer, editor, and lyricist,  I am currently marketing my novels.  My recent editorial work is Seeds of Vengeance, by Mark Rogers and Freedom, Love, Gold, by the Tarnay Family.  I co-authored  a Parent’s Choice Award-winning children’s CD, The Toy Box which is now a symphony. (Premiered at Bear Valley Music Festival, Bear Valley, Ca., 1998)

I am a full-time writer and editor.  Recently retired,  I was a thirty-two year educator and mentor teacher.  Honored as an exemplary educator, I also worked with a local university as a mentor for student teachers.  I have presented  workshops at the national, state, and district levels concerning mentoring young teachers and teaching children to write.
