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 #4 - We reached a milestone! June 10, 2021

🥳 I officially passed 100 reserved copies with 21 days left in this campaign. The book has also moved up into the number 2 position for pre-orders in the fiction category. Thanks to all of you who made that possible! 🥰

While not statistically on track at this moment, it's the power of exponential numbers that will make the 500 goal attainable. Right now there are 52 of you that are receiving this email. I know you have at least three friends that will know another two people that may want to support this effort. I also have another 300 people that I am continuing to contact and who will also have others who will jump in. With only 20 days left, it is still possible to reach my goal! 

Also remember that the 2 new bonuses are what helped me break the 100 mark! They are good until Friday night, so you still have time to Christmas shop in June! Sending a personal email is the best way to invite people to the site, so copy the short blurb below to send to your friends.

Oh and I'm very excited that one reader will have a character named after her in the follow up to A Knock on the Door that is being written as this campaign goes on. The question is, will she be good or bad, live or die? I can tell you that she will see her name in print!

I am so grateful to each of you!

Hi  (name) ,

My friend Roberta has written her first 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 20 days.  100 books were reserved the first week, so she's on her way, but she needs a lot more support. She's offering 2 very special bonuses for the next 2 DAYS ONLY to help her reach her goal, so don't delay in checking out this site:
