Story
Tagline
Author, humorist, lover of life
Introduction
I grew up in Independence, Missouri, and was strongly influenced by Harry Truman's straight talk and honest action. I have been a registered radiological technologist, pre-need counselor, webmaster, humor columnist, and blogger.

I am also a moderator for the Google Plus Community "Writers Discussion Group"  which proudly hit 10,000 members March 8, 2013 and topped 15,000 on October 22, 2013.

I am the author of three books,  a collection of essays, "Queen Klutz: The Misadventures of a Very Clumsy Woman," a paranormal mystery novel, "River of Possibilities," and a humorous self-help manual, "7 Ways You Screw Up Your Life (and how to unscrew it)"

I am published in the Examiner newspaper, 2006 Writer's Blog Anthology and as a featured columnist at USA Deep South and Southern Humorists. I live in rural Jackson County, Missouri.

I am a humorist, lover of life, author and caregiver for my disabled husband (stroke) and until her recent passing, my mother-in-law (Parkinson's). I love social media because I don't get to meet people in real-life due to my caregiving responsibilities.

I blog about laughter, bad luck, no luck, being a klutz, cars that hate me, life and love. I turned several of my blog posts and newspaper columns into my first book.  Then I lived the dream of writing a novel which is available at Amazon and Smashwords.  I am an early adopter of new technologies and wrote a third book - a humorous self-help manual with many friends from the early days of Twitter including Foreword by Chris Brogan. Contributors = Jeremiah Owyang, Becky McCray, Susan Reynolds, Terry Starbucker, Liz Strauss. I worked for Seth Godin when Squidoo was being launched, building pages to increase the site's viability.
