I taught and mentored writers over the last twenty-five years. Because of my years as a missionary among primitive people I became a story teller regaling audiences with the humor I found in everyday events. Many of my students became published authors and/or free lance writers.
I hold a B.S. Degree from North Texas University in Education. I am fluent in Spanish after living in Mexico for 9 years, and graduating from the Spanish Language School in Guadalajara.
I have six published books and 80 published articles.
