Self-publishing charted my unconventional path into STEM. Each story, website design, brand redesign, and book cover served as a guidepost that led to earning my Masters in English, Technical Communication with a concentration on human-computer interaction and instructional design.

Using technology to create solutions for clients includes videos about the tools, systems, and processes used daily to serve my clients, provide consulting services, produce and publish books, and host online events for readers.

If you like characters who warm your heart, get on your nerves, and make you appreciate your best friend you’ll enjoy my fiction books. The Diamond Butterfly devotionals are perfect for you if you’re dedicated to living a God-inspired life.

Free where possible and .99 where free is not an option. Amazon.com doesn’t allow eBooks to be published for free, so if they price match it’ll be free if not it’ll be 99 cents. When Amazon decides not to price match, you’re able to download a copy below for free from me. Click each cover to download your copy via BookFunnel.
