WRITER

straight road

The road is rarely straight.

Life is full of peaks and valleys. Get ready to depart your recliner, office or cubicle with inspiring stories to help you move forward. The eclectic array of articles offers places to visit and read about people who make a difference. Words, spoken or written, help us survive the daily grind and find new joy, as we learn and grow, despite our challenges.

My Books

Gift of the Suitcase starts when I graduated from Ohio State University. My parents gave me a large, gray suitcase and a round trip ticket to France. The suitcase disappeared on a ferry when I crossed the Channel into France. The summer job in Lyon, France fizzled out like a tiny birthday candle. But the trip left an indelible affect on my life.

As we travel through life, we all suffer loss. This travel memoir takes the reader through unexpected life changes where international travel often played a role. Whether moving through marriage, divorce, illness or other events, we cope. The kindness of people shines on our lives.

In January 2017 Jeff Crilley, owner of Real News PR and former, local TV reporter asked me to talk about my book on his radio show. Click on the book cover below to listen to what I had to say. I enjoyed the experience.
