My Writing Story

I am a freelance writer and educational consultant working in Southern California. I became a published poet while in high school and have continued to write throughout my career. Now, I am using my knowledge of learning design to create unique resources for parents and teachers.


I am publishing my books under my own imprint, The Writing Derby.

I hold a BA in English from Spring Arbor University and an MA in Management from the University of Redlands.
