I'm the Author of Breathe. Breathe., a dark poetry and fiction collection, published by Unnerving, 2017. I am journalist, writer, publicist, editor, podcast co-host, and a PR/marketing professional with bachelor degrees in Journalism, English and History from a private university. Simultaneously, because this work is never done, I am a hands-on mother of 3 children (age 18, 14, 10). I have 20 years experience in a wide variety of areas in my fields and I own/operate Addison's Compass Public Relations (9 years), Hook of a Book (7 years), and I did do photography under Breathe Beauty Art and Photography for a few years, but the latter is on hiatus, even though I still love to do photorgraphy. I love books, reading, writing, art, painting, photography, nature, baking, cooking, crafts with kids, yoga, magical stories, fairytales and castles, music, dance, history. In addition to publishing Breathe. Breathe., I also have a story in the anthology Hardened Hearts, called "The Heart of the Orchard," which also comes from Unnerving. My story from Breathe. Breathe., "Dandelion Yellow" has also be re-printed in Project Entertainment Network's anthology My Favorite Stories, right after Brian Keene's. I have several books, collections, and poems in various genres in process and hope to get a lot more of my own writing completed within the next year. I run Hook of a Book Media in which I specialize in public relations (PR) and marketing for authors in many forms, as well as am a writing coach and editor. At Sinister Grin Press, I'm an editor and do marketing and PR. I also work with Raw Dog Screaming Press in PR. So yes, I'm a writer, a poet, have an editor's eye, and am a reader and my head is often in the clouds. I also have always incessantly volunteered in my community and currently I am the chairwoman of the Board of Directors for a growing mental health center and rape crisis domestic violence haven.
