I moved to the Missouri Ozarks, in 2001, to a little cottage in the Mark Twain National Forest. I came with my three dogs, two cats, a 24-foot U-Haul, and a dream – to become a writer. With dedication and hard work, I can say “I made it!” The journey to get here includes passing Long Ridge Writers Group, Breaking Into Print course, a membership into the National Books Critic Circle, and an undergraduate program at Southern New Hampshire University – for which I am still enrolled, and plan to continue through to my master’s degree in creative writing/fiction. Last year I was invited to join Alpha Sigma Lambda. This year I was honored by being chosen to join Sigma Alpha Pi’s National Leadership Society.
May 2014 – My latest achievement was being accepted into the Southern New Hampshire University’s Millyard Creative department where I am writing for their Web site Be a Social Entrepreneur for a four-month period, and editing their students’ success stories.
Now that the internship is finished with Southern New Hampshire University, I’m going to further my freelance career through editing and writing both fiction and non-fiction stories. So, stick around and see what I come up with next.
December 2015 – The bachelor’s is under my belt. The new journey begins in the master’s program at SNHU in creative writing and English.
