As I was about to graduate college with a degree in Hospitality Management, I realized that interior decorating was my passion. How did that happen? As a realtor I began staging homes and fell head over heels in love with design. In 2009 I became certified as an Interior Decorator. Hue knew?
While actively decorating and staging homes, I began a blog talk pod show on Blog Talk Radio that offers decorating tips so that as many people as possible can benefit from my expertise. I have to admit that teaching in the classroom is one of my favorite ways to share interior design with others. Helping people enjoy their space is why I wrote the Amazon Best Selling book D.I.Y. Color Confidence, a book that will absolutely help you understand color.
What is your writing process?
My writing process generally begins when my mind is at rest. I like to keep a pad and pencil on my nightstand so I can jot down ideas. Later in the day I flush out those ideas and craft them into something bigger. That's just the beginning.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I can remember the first author that impacted me; Judy Blume. I really enjoyed her books. There wasn't one book, in particular, that impacted me. What impacted me most was the ability to immerse myself in a story, become attached to characters, and actually miss them when the book ended. I loved that and still do.
D.I.Y. Color Confidence is the perfect book for D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself) enthusiasts. You already know you like decorating; you just need to know why you do what you do; so you can do more of it. This book will fill in the blanks and make future decorating projects easy and effortless. D.I.Y. Color Confidence is also for those who aren’t sure they can decorate on their own; but want to try.
