I'm a retired professor of literacy development, meaning that all aspects of language skill and talent interest me. I try to take care of body, mind, and soul by working out, running, meditating, and adhering to a vegetarian lifestyle. Award-winning full-time writer, with three books, mostly for children and teens, out there already, the fourth nearly completed with the collaboration of a talented illustrator. Namaste! Life is good. Love is kind.
