+Stoking the Fires of Young Writers
+Powerpoint Books to Supplement Instruction
+Get Ready! Get Set! READ!
In my spare time, I am a writer, a reader, and a runner. I typically read three books at a time. I have raced in distances from 5K to 50 miles. I enjoy spending time with my husband and my 4 children.
I believe reading is the gateway to all learning. If you are reluctant to read I feel you haven’t found the right book yet! I can help you find what you love or possibly write it for you!
