"I started to write and illustrate children's books since I want to communicate positivity and empowerment to young children. I have to say my daughter, Sarah, really inspired me to write with excitement.
My background is in Human Resources where I managed adults in a very corporate environment. Unfortunately, there is very little room for creativity and adults are immune to change. I finally took a break from a high strung work environment....I believe I found my passion.
