" I started to and illustrate children's books since I want to communicate positivity and empowerment to young children. I have to say my daughter, Sarah, really inspired me to write with excitement.
My background is in Human Resources where I managed adults in a very corporate environment. Unfortunately, there is very little room for creativity and adults are immune to change. I finally took a break from a high strung work environment....I believe I found my passion.
Looking back, I remember being awkward as a little girl. I lacked self-esteem and often felt displaced at school. I didn't know how to empower myself in many areas and the only books of inspiration were fairy tales.
Presently, I'm a proud mother and my wonderful daughter is my biggest support. My mission is to ignite the message of self worth, valuable relationships, and empowerment in my books, helping and inspiring children.
The first Book I created is An Eagle Named Canary., copyright 2010, A story about acceptance and friendship.
I recently completed Moon Girl, highlighting the theme of self worth and valuable relationships.
It really portraits how we all look at ourselves in relationship to others. It is amazing to see how we discover our value only after we take a sabattical or journey to the unknown. People are constantly trying to find something new, something better. This is a positive realization. This is what motivated me to write and illustrate this book and Moon Girl's relationship with Sun Girl was inspired by my mother's relationship with her older sister."
