“I have been writing my whole life and penned my first novel at the age of 11. My dream was to be a newspaper reporter who wrote novels in the wee hours of the night. When that career did not materialize, I got a Ph.D. in Psychology. As a university professor, I taught graduate students and conducted research on behavioral and community-based interventions to prevent cancer. Now I have come full circle. I am a children’s book writer who can grab a cup of coffee in my favorite mug and sit down to write in the early hours of the morning instead of the dead of night.
