I’m doing that mid-life career change thing. No comment on whether it was by design, intervention, or the will of the universe.

At 10 years old, when my teacher asked me what I want to be when I grow up I replied, “Write a Book”. Aside from not thinking of the words author, writer, novelist, I at no time felt ready to do it. Until now.

Now, I write books.

Well, I finally sat down and did it. Then I wrote another book while I looked for my one true agent (someone who believes in me). If you’re an agent, I have 2 novels, 30 children’s books, and my next novels are in progress.

I make funny T-Shirts and Merchandise.

#GME This is the way or I like the stock versions.

I created merchandise to capture historical moments in time. Some are a bit snarky, but I’m adding customizable options soon! Please check out my store!

2020 Was a year for the history books. We thought it couldn’t get worse, but without fail the next day rose and it got worse.

Commemorate 2020 with the Bingo 2020 card. I designed it so we can laugh and never forget what we went through in 2020.

We were playing Bingo,
while 2020 was playing Chess.

Thank you!
