I have been a freelance writer for fifteen years. I began my writing career when I moved to Taos, New Mexico. What an inspirational place!
In 2011, I moved to Austin Texas and am happy to continue working at Bright Hub in a city who shouts their motto often, "Keep Austin Weird!"
Along with Bright Hub, I also offer writing services such as business plans and human resource handbooks, forms, policies and procedures. I have published one novel, Firewater in 1999.
Most recently, my writing has been focused on business management, human resources, project management, and help for the small business owner.
My most important goal at Bright Hub is to offer real life situations, especially for small business owners or entrepreneurs, not the fluffy stuff you come across on other websites. I do believe if it sounds like a duck and walks like a duck, it's probably a duck and there's too much fluff on the Web I feel is misleading to entrepreneurs.
I have a background in employee development, employee management, and project development. I have written employee manuals for a national company whose main office is in Rhode Island along with various articles for Redbook and the Sterling MacFadden Group. I have also had articles appear in Glimmer Train Press.
I am married to my best friend (Bill Scheid) and am a mother of two, Rachel and Julie and have one grandson, Gabriel who lives in Alaska. I also adore my son-in-law who is like a son to me, Alan.

I received a Human Resource Management degree in 1981 from the University of Pittsburgh and have worked in that field along with the auto industry, body and paint industry, and now have focused solely on my writing career.
I have past experience in writing grants for a Taos K-8 501c3 school, Yaxche Community School and have received over $100K for them through grant submissions.
