As a graduate of Brigham Young University, Provo, I began teaching high school English and theater. During my time as a teacher, I was awarded grants to create and implement a district-wide English program for accelerated and at-risk students. Since that time, I have published three books, "Awakenings," which is a science fiction novel, "Hope in All Things," a short story anthology, and "Journaling For Tweens," a self-help book for kids eleven to fourteen about attaining success through journaling. Since the pandemic began, I started online tutoring and reviewing essays for college students (academic papers, college entrance essays, and practice essays for achievement tests). In the past I've worked as a technical writer and editor as well. Sharing my writing and English skills brings me great joy. For many years now, I've conducted countless writing group sessions in the west Houston area. When I'm not writing, I like to read, swim, spend time with my family, serve at my church, sing, and do late-night runs with my husband to DQ.
