For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.

    1. Thanks for reading my post, Tammy. I’m happy it helped. Violet’s memoir essay on being a twin was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul…about twins. You might enjoy reading her work and also reading other true stories in Chicken Soup and in the Not Your Mother’s Book by Publishing Syndicate. Good luck with your memoir. Let me know if I can help.
