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 #5 - More than 1/2 way there June 15, 2021

I wanted to let you know where I stand, as the campaign is almost over.

380 more copies in 16 days is the goal this site set to get a major publisher interested in my book. I have to be realistic.  At this point it’s doubtful I'll reach this, so I’m setting a new personal goal of topping 250 books in the next 14 days. I’ve got five smaller publishers looking at my book, and this would go a long way in impressing them!

Can you help me do it? If you would email 4 people that you have a good relationship with and ask them to support me, it would go miles in helping me accomplish this goal. Whether they are readers or just enjoy supporting startup authors, I’d be truly grateful! The link is  I’m including a sample email at the bottom that you can cut, paste and customize.

Don’t forget - you can start your holiday shopping in June! This is an opportunity to start stocking up on those gifts for hard to buy for people. They will NOT have read this book!

I’ll be back in touch to let you know if I make it,

Hi (name) ,

We are all inundated by people wanting something from us, but this ask is different. I’m reaching out to you because I know you’ll be interested in helping someone turn their dream into a reality. 

My friend Roberta has written her first novel called A Knock on the Door. It's a fast-paced crime thriller and people who have gotten sneak peeks of her first draft have loved it!

She's got five publishers interested in her book with 120 preorders, but she needs to reach a goal of 130 more copies in just 14 days to cement a publishing deal. To get the attention of a large publisher she needs a total of 500. 

She's offering a variety of special bonuses to help her reach her goal, so don't delay in checking out this site:  There’s only 14 days left for her to get this done, so start your holiday shopping for a gift that no one will have read - except me, LOL!

Thanks in advance,

(Your name)
