Young Writer’s Workshop

Posted on by 0 comment

Anyone with teenagers interested in a writer’s workshop, check out the Dowagiac Library on Oct. 12. I will be co-leading another workshop with Kara, the Youth Services Coordinator. This event will be similar to the writer’s workshop I led there over the summer. We will also discuss planning for writing a novel. I will have signed copies of my book, “Teacher Confessions Winter In My Hood” available for purchase. Please email me or message me for more information.

Everyone Has A Story To Tell

Posted on by 0 comment

This lady, Frannie Stites, has been a long time friend! She gave me the fitness and health bug and taught me to be a group fitness instructor years ago. I think she can and has done it all. She is beyond talented in so many ways. She sings, writes her own songs and music, plays the flute and guitar (and probably others), can ride a unicycle, motorcycle, horse, roller blades, sailboat, makes her own greeting cards, has a knack for remembering people’s birthdays and special days, is incredibly organized and precise, and these are just a few off the top of my head! Oh, yeah, and she just beat cancer! She has been a great influence, inspiration and friend to many. I can’t wait till she writes her story.
