about me

I would describe myself as an expressive globetrotting Grandma who, besides traveling, also enjoys concerts, socializing and working with flowers. 

Retired from the travel industry, I became an Arizona registered Homeopath and spent 6 years working in K-12 Special Ed and ESL in Phoenix with PVUSD #69.  

I am now the owner of LakeRider Publishing, 

I publish  newsletters, webpages and books.

My husband and I have been happily married for over 32 years with 4 grown children and 6 beautiful grandchildren.  

We are proud to call Arizona our home for the last 30 years.


I love to introduce children to new things and watch them discover their own unique qualities and potential.  

My children's books are about love, self-esteem and acceptance of others and  include different aspects of nature such as healthy food, animals, trees and flowers.

I hope your little ones like my books. 

We are always open to donating books to charity. Contact for qualifying information.

Thanks for stopping by.
