Helping people, especially children, be the best they can be comes naturally to me as I'm a Guidance Counselor and I hold a License in Mental Health Counseling. My books tell stories with positive social and emotional messages woven into them. I've been married 23 years and have a daughter in college. I have 2 yorkies and about a dozen feral cats (they live outside and are all fixed). The beauty of nature and the quirky uniqueness of people inspire me.
