My original plan was to work in the television or radio industry, so I got a job at the Twin Cities Public Television Station. After working in production and recording, I was tasked with writing, editing and producing a variety of shows, which served to increase my interest in writing and becoming an author. My plans were waylaid by a variety of occurrences, but eventually, I was able to fulfill my dream of becoming an author.
I currently write children's fiction and provide amusing stories that marry education with entertainment.

Searching for Addison's audience.
From book signings, festivals, book readings, and markets places, I'm introducing Addison books to young readers. Meeting people and explaining the easy new format that includes new vocabulary, word definitions, and language skills development on each page, also makes Addison books handy learning tools.
