Description

Class Experience

I want to teach young people how to tap into their natural writing abilities. I have been a writer most of my life and took several writing courses in the last seventeen years. Six books, including three Young Adult, two Middle-grade and one Women's devotional are published. I also have contracts for  publication of three more Middle-grade books. I also have several works in progress and plus many ideas waiting to be written. 
All children have artistic talent, be it writing, drawing, singing, acting or any number of other ways to express themselves. As a writer myself I think I can help young people discover and explore their talents either for personal use or public consumption someday.
