"I can't remember a time in my life when I didn't enjoy reading. Be a Lifetime Reader!"


Background Information

As an advocate for children's literacy, I believe that learning to read is critical for success in school and later in life.  I hope that parents and guardians help foster the joy of reading by reading to their children at an early age.

Aloma and the Red Suitcase was published in November 2004. In the story, Aloma learns about the importance of being responsible - a valuable life skill.   I have available a Teacher's Guide based on the SC Curriculum Standards for Language Arts for this book.  In addition, some of my motivational poems appear in Potpourri: A Collection of Literary Works (2005).   My goal is to write books that are good teaching tools to assist children in understanding character traits, life skills, and the importance of reading. At the moment, I'm working on several projects.  

Currently, I'm a member of the Columbia Writers Alliance where I serve as treasurer.  In early 2007, I joined other members of the Alliance and partnered with the University of South Carolina’s Psychology, Arts, Split P Soup and Dance departments to do a pilot study of 20 underserved girls, comparing the effects of creative writing to visual art. From the study, 18 of the 20 girls penned their first anthology entitled, “A Story to Tell, Wordz Up”. The anthology was published by the USC Arts Institutes’ Stepping Stone Press.

Additionally, I manage STP Publishing a small business that provides thorough proofreading and editing services to promising authors wanting to complete a manuscript.

Originally from New York, I grew up in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.  I lived in Northern Virginia for 8 years prior to moving to South Carolina. For the past 20 years, Columbia, SC has been my home.

“Be a Lifetime Reader”!
