Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have an Associate’s degree in Graphic Design from Steven’s Henagar College. As a writer African Safari with Ted and Raymond, and approved by “Sex and the City actress Kristin Davis, I happily traded in her 9-to-5 gig for a rewarding career as a children’s author. The best part of working from my home office, I get to spend more time with my own silly kids. I put my passion into getting it right for the customer. I made many times Dean’s List; Many times I made Honor roll for my courageous act of going to school after 20 plus years.
I have written over 15 books. I have some off the shelves so I can re-write, edit and put new covers and material into my books.
