BiographyI've been writing for publication since I was 12 years old, and I started my first business when I was 18. I've continually had a business or a contract gig (even alongside my full-time employment) ever since. I've been published on more than 200 websites, magazines, journals and newspapers, and have written thousands of published pieces. And as of the end of 2019, I will have nine books published plus half a dozen published books for which I've written chapters.
I have taught all kinds of literature; creative, media and business writing; women in management; courses on how to get published; oral communication and mass communications; children's literature; visual communication and many creative courses for the first year experience that combined.
I'm the founder of Creating the Freelance Career and of Women's Wellness Weekends. I coach clients through book writing and publishing processes. I coach entrepreneurial clients on how to get their businesses up and running. I consult at universities on assessment, accreditation and the arts, and I'm a frequent public speaker at a variety of events.
