My Story

I’ve always been a storyteller in some form. Even as a journalist/PR professional, I preferred sharing people’s life stories in feature articles as opposed to writing “hard” news.

In 2001, I left my job to stay home with my kids and pursue my dream of writing books for children. My participation in an online critique group since 2007 has generated invaluable feedback and sharpened my own editing skills. As moderator, I coordinate the weekly submissions and critiques of seven members. Previously, I moderated a face-to-face critique group.

While pursuing publication, I’ve won a national grant and several local and national writing contests. The Kimberly Colen Work-in-Progress grant I received from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators inspires and motivates me to complete the third round of revisions to my YA manuscript.

When I'm not working on my own stories, I help others tell theirs through my consulting business Guided Personal Stories (GPS). I'm most drawn to stories that shine light on dark situations and help us all see more clearly.

Hey Robin,

You're absolutely right. I have just remedied this gross oversight on my part. Thanks for the nudge. :o)

Good to see you, too! Am working on a novel rewrite and a couple of short pieces. How 'bout you?

Had an awesome morning of writing at library. Starting to really enjoy this whole re-vision journey!
