I don't really consider myself an author, more of a hobby writer. My first book, Survival Guide for the Working World, was purely an accident. I had finished university and found myself with spare time. I was also in a mood where I was irritated with the behaviours around me. In polite society, we don't express those kinds of thoughts out loud; that's for your inside voice. So I started writing, and all sorts of things came out.
Once I was several topics into my ramblings, I realized I might have something worth sharing. So I went back and re-wrote a lot of the content, so it was fit for public consumption. And here we are today.
My writing is based on life experience with a desire to share the lessons I've learned with others to save them a little pain and shave some time off the learning curve. I am not going to claim to be any kind of expert, I am a sharer of hard lessons learned and years of experience in all sorts of work environments.
For the boring stuff, I have a Bachelors’ Degree in Management, with experience in change management and infrastructure asset management. And just for extra fun, I'm also a certified esthetician.
On a personal note, I have two grown children and have been married to my husband for 30 years and counting.
