For me, writing is a journey that has reflected the different stages of my life.
I’ve written three true crime books that are in-depth versions of murder cases I have covered in my role as a news reporter.
I've written three parenting memoirs about the difficult balance of being a working mother in an industry that requires %110 every single day.
I’ve also written a caregiving memoir about taking care of my dying mother, the role reversal, the toll it takes on your body and your mind, and the ultimate humility you gain by having the privilege of ushering someone from one world into the next.
I’ve written two children’s books—labors of love, a reminder of the hours and hours I spent reading books to my own precious daughters.
Now, I am on a new path as a writer, using my imagination to create a murder mystery series based on everything I’ve learned in my thirty-plus years as a television reporter. The stories and characters are born out of fantasy, but the scenarios draw on my real life as a crime reporter.
What will I write next?
Who knows, but one there is one thing I’m certain of, that I will never stop writing.
Are you looking for a speaker to entertain, to inform, to connect with your audience? I speak to both large and intimate audiences at public and private functions. I can craft my presentation to the needs of your group. My topics include:
Caregiving and End-of-life issues
Stage Might is the opposite of stage fright. It's about climbing mountains, about facing your fears, about presenting yourself and your ideas in the clearest, most confident way. I am convinced I can turn your fright into might and help you grab the attention of any audience. This is why I created Stage Might Communications.
Three decades as a television journalist have given me the perfect vantage point for assessing effective versus ineffective communication. Whether you are speaking in a boardroom or a ballroom, I can help you connect with your audience in ways you never imagined.
Communication skills are not always innate, but they can be learned. I will watch your presentation in person, or you can send me a video, and together we will craft a plan for improving your performance. It's not always what you say, but how you say it that can make the difference in whether you truly engage with you audience.
I am excited to share my expertise and knowledge with you and help you make people care about what you have to say. Your message is important, but if it Is not conveyed effectively, it will be lost in all the noise our world is filled with today.
I am available to work with groups or individuals. I have hourly rates and discount half-day or full-day rates. You can learn more about Stage Might on my Facebook page.
