Best-Selling Author

 

 I was once told I could not write.  

After writing lengthy 75 page papers throughout graduate school, I boldly call myself a writer.  Expression through use of words is invigorating, compelling, powerful and can ultimately be life changing.  I leap to the opportunity.

I encourage you to pick up a copy of my latest book, "Uniquely Qualified."
