About Me

I’ve had a bit of a varied career. A retired RN I practiced and taught nursing for about 25 years. I was in the publishing field for more than 30 years and have written nine books for young adults, written and edited more than 750 health and life science articles, and managed the publication from beginning to end of dozens of books. I taught in an LPN program for 10 years, did my Master’s work in Curriculum and Instruction, and am a Consultant and Fellow for the National Writing Project.
