Write to motivate, motivated to write.

Background Information

When I learned the power of scribing the written word at the tender age of five, I was committed to turn my newfound hobby into a well-supported career. But of course the world is full of sweet smelling roses to a kindergartner, and I realized upon graduation my writing fantasy wouldn't keep me nourished or put a roof over y head. I supported myself working as a reading teacher by day and dance instructor by night. But the passion remained ignited within. Although I remain a teacher, I decided to think like that five year-old and realize dreams are realities and realities are dreams; I can have both.

Write what you know, advises self-help publishing books, and stick to one subject. But how can I limit myself to just one genre? I enjoy researching for non-fiction health articles, composing children's picture books, and now my new project, writing a YA novel.

Successfully my articles are published; I even published a gluten-free cookbook, but the day I rejoice is when I see one of my children's books or novels displayed on the shelves of Barnes and Noble.

I am not only a writer, but also a diligent student. Or maybe a book-nerd. I reach my checkout limit at the library. Most of my books are innocent YA novels and grammar or vocabulary builders. I love the written word. Ok, maybe I'm obsessed with thumbing through the dictionary challenging myself to find five words for the word "word", or scan through pamphlets priding myself for finding a grammar error. That is why I joined Writer's Den. I want the critique. I want to learn. I want to be the best writer I can be.


Published health articles in local and national magazines, such as Cooking Light; published cookbook series and self-help books.

Additional Information

Currently focusing on writing for YA.
