This is not me

I have lived in many dif­fer­ent places, had more than one career, and done a lot of dif­fer­ent things. So, in case you’ve ever wondered…
I can­not speak Swedish, and this is not me. Nope, nei­ther is this, although it’s fun to see my name on Amazon.
I do not write para­nor­mal romance nov­els, although it sounds like fun and maybe some­day I will.
I have nev­er been, nor ever will be, a mem­ber of the Gor­geous Ladies of Wrestling (G.L.O.W.), although I was a cheer­leader (small ‘c’) and am a mem­ber of the Gor­geous Ladies of Pub­lish­ing (G.L.O.P.).
I would love to be a zookeep­er, but I’m not.
I enjoy play­ing with my cam­era, but I’m not a pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er.
Not an exec­u­tive search pro­fes­sion­al, or a finance and busi­ness affairs exec­u­tive, or a sci­ence teacher.
This is DEFINITELY not me.
Per­haps a pseu­do­nym is in order? Any ideas?
Does any­thing inter­est­ing come up if you Google your name?

Busy, busy, busy…

I haven’t post­ed any new arti­cles for quite awhile now, so you’re prob­a­bly think­ing I’ve been sit­ting at home all day eat­ing bon-bons and watch­ing Oprah. No way! I’ve actu­al­ly been tak­ing a con­scious break from arti­cle writ­ing to focus on a book… or two. What start­ed out as an idea for one mid­dle grade book has now become a pic­ture book biog­ra­phy of Emmanuel Yeboah AND a teen how-to guide for Youth Ven­ture! I’m not sure work­ing on two so total­ly dif­fer­ent books at the same time is a good idea, but they’re slow­ly mov­ing along.

I also joined the Advi­so­ry Com­mit­tee of our region­al SCBWI chap­ter last year, and was very busy help­ing to orga­nize our 17th Annu­al Writ­ing and Illus­trat­ing for Chil­dren Con­fer­ence. It was one of the most daunt­ing, eye-open­ing and reward­ing expe­ri­ences of my life, and I tru­ly can’t wait to do it again!

And now, back to work…
