About The Author

I took a trip down the Danube from Amsterdam (I cried my way through Anne Frank's house) all the way to Budapest ( I found a woodcut of Franz Liszt) and on to Prague--the journey of a lifetime. Before that, my passion was connecting individually with kids through teaching. I wrote a book to mentor teachers in how to learn with JOY. Then I wrote a romance as a tribute to my parents' amazing love story. Being in their heads brought me JOY. I love writing almost anything that I'm passionate about...education, short stories, poetry, novels inspired by true happenings, and children's books. I enJOY being in the writing zone and never have writer's block. I've actually won awards for my writing. Nice! I love traveling to Europe and road trips in the USA. When home, I walk, swim, and garden with friends and my best-ever guy. I love big ocean waves, all seasons, and falling snow.
