  • About Me
    From the time I was six years old, I have had a needle in my hand. Either a sewing needle or knitting needles. By the time I was thirteen, I could make complex sewing patterns that fit and looked more like a professional construction rather than homemade. I studied the arts extensively as a way of overcoming my undetected dyslexia. Later, in college after finally being diagnosed, I received proper training and went from a hater of books to a lover. I became a veracious reader. Slated for failure by every teacher I ever had, I not only became a successful student but a successful entrepreneur and designed and sold jewelry all over the United States. In my thirties, still not satisfied with my station in life I returned to school to prepare for an MBA program. I received my master’s degree and was a tenacious business owner. I am told I was a serial entrepreneur, which I always said was immeasurably better than a serial killer. I became a partner in an evening wear dress company and took the young start-up from zero to over 1.5 mils within three years, while concurrently keeping my professorial responsibilities in the business school at Tulane University. I was writing technical pieces and educational periodic for the classroom and students using innovative processes to teach Information Technology, and it was changing and growing every semester. Now retired I have been writing a book since 2007 and joined an incubator which has taught me a great deal and helped me to zero in on reading lists that are directed toward the craft of writing. I have recently finished writing the first book that I started in 2007 and am ready to learn and network with others that have similar yearnings and lust for learning. When I am not writing I still spend my afternoons in my studio using needles and threads to create artwork that might look like clothing and award-winning quilts.
