Teacher and Speaker
I have taught at community colleges, conferences and workshops across the country, as well as online. I am available for coaching and editing projects. I am also available for talks to writers groups and others about my writing, my books, childlessness, my dog . . . Just give me a microphone.
Speaking of microphones, I have been a professional musician for almost as long as I’ve been a writer. I sing, play guitar and piano, and write songs. My current “day job” is music minister for Sacred Heart Church here in Newport, Oregon. I lead choirs, lead children in song for our religious education program, and sing and play for Masses, weddings, funerals and special occasions. In addition, I perform solo wherever people will listen.
CEO, Blue Hydrangea Productions
This is the mother company and the imprint for my publishing, teaching, editing, writing and music activities. I chose the name for the massive blue flowers right outside my front door which mirror the ones that cover the Azores islands in Portugal from which my mother’s family came.
