She has traveled to more than 15 different countries and has had more than thirty-five years experience in the creative arts and education. Her poetry is bold, original, colorful, and imaginative.Her written and published works include The Weight Management Diary, Axioms for Life/Work, Axioms for Life I, Axioms for Life II, Axioms for Life III, Poetic Universalisms I (hardback/paperback), Poetic Universalisms II, (hardback/paperback), 50 Reasons Why You Have/Have Not Arrived, Foreign Language Tips for Travelers (eBook), School Security Rewind (eBook), Writing Poetry: How to make yourself a Pro (eBook) and Jumpstarting Your Choir, Volume I.
