About the author

In my sixty three years of life, I didn't know that I had a story waiting to be told. A serial entrepreneur, I have founded six very different businesses, but never saw writing on my radar.

In 2006, I attended a week-long memoir writing class in Guatemala, conducted by a best-selling author whose worked I had followed since the 80's. Joyce Maynard was much kinder to me than I was to myself, and she worked hard to get my best work out of me, in spite of myself. While it was a wonderful experience, I determined that writing, especially about myself, was not a talent I possessed.

The workshop did, however, give me confidence to write in a more structured way for my profession. I'm a Board Certified Hypnotist. I've self-published two books, written curriculums, and blogged topical and inspirational content online regularly for the past seven years.

Fifteen years after the Guatemala workshop, I used self-hypnosis to find the inspiration to write something fun. I love relatable characters that I feel I know intimately. I'm excited to watch the story unfold as I type, and I wonder what's going to happen next. That's what I hope my readers will experience. A sequel to A Knock on the Door is currently being written, and I've got two more ideas tumbling around in my head. Who knows what words will flow across the screen in the next fifteen years!

Update #2 - Thanks so much! June 3, 2021

I've never been involved in a crowdfunding event. It's been an interesting experience - fun, but a lot of pressure! The support from my meager network has been overwhelming. Thanks for being a part of that! In case you missed it, you can read a couple of sample chapters on the site. (There is a sample tab above the synopsis that a lot of people are missing.) As a thank you, I'm posting the prologue here that no one has seen! Also, at the bottom is a small blurb you can copy and paste to a dozen of your besties that may want to read the book or help out a new author. 

Prologue:

His instant reaction to the sound of gunfire was to duck his head and slam on the brakes. The car spun wildly across three lanes. Jack tried frantically to gain control as he realized that what he had heard was the sound of his tire blowing out. As he headed for the guard rail he murmured a quiet I love you to Lori. He never felt the cold dark water of the river.


Referral paragraph:

I wanted to tell you about Roberta, a friend of mine that has written a novel called A Knock on the Door. It's a fast-paced crime thriller that you may enjoy. She's trying to sign with a publisher who expects 500 reservations in the next 30 days. She had 50 books reserved the first day, so she's on her way! But she needs a lot more support. Here is the link to check it out: https://publishizer.com/a-knock-on-the-door/
If she doesn't reach her goal, you'll get your money back, so there's nothing to lose and potentially a great read to gain! Thanks in advance for helping her out.
