What am I up to? - I'm currently updating my notebooks (I keep so many notes, quotes, etc.), editing Purified Revenge and finishing my second draft of a children's story, learning illustrator, blogging, being inspired and creative as often as possible, researching content details to define characters and offering free basic resume review and updates for a limited time. Yes, free. Why? Because, I enjoy helping others present themselves professionally and find the best way for their experience, skills and hard work to shine through on a resume (advanced resume updates or new projects discounted!)!

A bit about me - I have attended writing conferences, courses, read numerous books and articles on the craft, subscribed to countless newsletters and blogs, talked with other authors, and learned so much! Even after 25 plus years of filling notebooks, journals, electronic files, napkins, backs of envelopes, etc. with my words, and learning from others, I know I will continue seeking and learning. With all of this given knowledge, I find that fear still stops me in my tracks at times and I sometimes struggle with finding time to write daily.  


Over the past 20 years, while working as a professional assistant and coordinator (my day job!), I have written dozens of short stories (even published a few!), outlined and drafted a few novels, scripts and other fiction. I have published articles, product descriptions, web content, professional business writing, provided resume and editing services, volunteered my writing skills to the Girl Scout magazine, written 'one-liners' for a restaurant app, and more! I enjoy researching for professional writings and adding my unique creativity to various writing requests!  Have a request or just need some inspiration? Contact me at inspiredbylife03@gmail.com


I may not be a full-time author, but I have always been one none the less. I have written many words on whatever writing surface I could find. I have a surplus of ideas floating around in my head on any given day. I know my knack of adding pure emotion to my own writing is a gift from God. I have had a few short stories published, volunteered as an article writer, and always tried to incorporate writing into my day jobs.

I have a mission to save the art of letter writing! Spread the word, by writing a letter :)

I am happily married to my high school sweetheart, sister to the best sister ever, aunt to the most amazing nephew, daughter of a muse, and inspired by those living their dream even if their primary focus is on daily tasks and commitments...they still find time for their dreams.

Author and devoted lover of words...
