My career has been almost as diverse as the stories I enjoy telling. For nearly 20 years I lived the life of a “road warrior” traveling throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia sharing stories about the beauty and magic of Hawaii.
I later spent nearly a decade working for one of the global giants of direct sales utilizing my coaching and management experience by providing sales and business training for hundreds of entrepreneurs from launch through established home based business. I developed creative learning materials, eCourses and Webinars … as it turns out, great training for my next career transition to author, blogger and information marketer!

- SAFFRON SEPTEMBER: A Muslim Woman's Story
on Nov. 07, 2012
This is the thought provoking, if at times heartbreaking, story of Zara, a 40 year old Muslim woman, estranged from her family, and living in the United States. As the story unfolds we learn about the passing of her mother, and the family dramas that ultimately lead to her move to America. Grappling with issues of cultural identify, judgment and social pressures, we follow her experiences dating and from one failed relationship to another, both here and in her native Pakistan.
Just as Zara is at the point of giving up her dreams of a husband and family, she meets Ali, and in that meeting everything changes. Their romance is charming and real, and gives us all hope. They appear to be the perfect match, and for the first time in a long while Zara begins enthusiastically planning for the future when, yet again, fate intervenes.
Saffron September is a love story, not just romantic love, but love of family, heritage, faith and ideals, and through the narration provides invaluable insight into the Muslim world. I've always believed there is great value in learning about other cultures, so even though I am not at all religious, I found the various religious references in the book to be enlightening and important to the telling of Zara's story. Saffron September is very well written, and I look forward to reading more from this talented author.
- Psychology for Parents: Birth to Teens
on July 08, 2013
I’m probably not the ideal person to comment on this book since I don’t have children of my own, but it’s so well written that I wanted to add my two cents of support for the author. This is an easy to read, no-fluff guide to make sense of parenthood. The author has included research supporting her approach, but there is also plenty of tangible advice, and easy to follow examples throughout the book. I think it’s also good to know that you don’t have to follow the precise flow of the book to gain the full benefits. If there is a particular area of concern, for example potty training or sibling rivalry, the format of the book makes it easy to find helpful answers. This is an easy book to recommend.
