From teaching, counseling and owning a small business to executive resume writing, ghostwriting and editing, I found my way to my current series of light-hearted murder mysteries. My degrees from Colorado College and the University of Missouri-KC gave me a springboard to discover many facets of multiple careers. Each offered its own benefits but I admit I love where I am right now. I divide my time between my home in South Texas, the Kansas City area and Branson, Missouri.
