I have always loved to write. I started writing as soon as I could hold a crayon, but didn't write mysteries until I entered a contest through a small publisher and won.  

Finally, my love of jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, and Hardy Boys mysteries clicked!

I love to read. 

Mysteries, thrillers, autobiographies, you name it! 

I also love to help other writers, which is why I started Escape With a Writer in September 2018. 

Since then, I have featured hundreds of great authors. 

The moment I heard there was such a thing as a Book Coach which combined all 3 of my passions, 

I signed up to take the natural next step and always working hard to improve my skills.
