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 #7 - Final Push to Get Over the Top! June 23, 2021

Attention all holiday shoppers! 

There’s a blue light special happening on aisle 5! (Yes, I know those under 50 will not get the joke, but I couldn’t help myself!)

Where can you buy a gift for $13 and you KNOW the recipient will not already have it? Here! 

Go to 

There’s only 7 more shopping days till my publishing campaign ends!

For the next 5 days only you can order the limited time Take Me Over the Top bonus offer and get 10 books for $130 with NO shipping. I lose money on this deal but here’s why I’m offering it:

I bet you didn’t know that it can cost an author between $10,000 -$12,000 to get a book published using a publisher. There’s all kinds of deals out there, but for unknown authors like me, it’s a huge investment risk. Yes, I can self-publish on Amazon and make $1.50 a book, but with no name, no one will ever find my book there. 

Right now 7 publishers that have expressed interest in my book, BUT if I can reach at least 250 pre-orders, my book gets offered to bigger publishers that are more likely to help me absorb some of these upfront costs! When more books are pre-ordered, they know there is a market for the book and are willing to share in the costs.

Will you help me do it? 

I need  at least 110 more pre-orders. With this new bonus, it is absolutely possible! 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! I’m including a sample email at the bottom that you can cut, paste and customize.

I want you to know that no matter what, your orders will be filled, so there is no risk to you. 

So get your holiday shopping out of the way now! (Remember, $13.00!!!!!!) 

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! (There’s 3 chapters published on this site!)

She's got seven publishers interested in her book with 130 preorders, but she needs to reach a goal of 110 more copies in just 7 days to cement a decent 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 7 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)
