That's me, Gloria! Excited! Can you tell? It was this very spot where everything 

was about to shift in my life.

One day I saw a picture of this beautiful lake and I knew in that moment I would be there, not really knowing why. I would soon discover a beautiful place called, Banff National Park in Canada. It was this very spot, Lake Louise which summoned me to align with my future and yours.

I have been writing for more than  40 years. Actually, if I am honest I had notebooks at the age of 10 with art and poetry.  I was the literary editor for the H.S. magazine and I took many classes in journalism and creative writing. I even won scholarship and awards for writing. However, no one encouraged me to pursue it as a career.

When the opportunity came to share a short story in a magazine many years ago, I was thrilled. Until, the dreaded moment the editor got hold of my 'wonderful' story. Soon, I would learn there was so much more to creating an engaging and compelling story.

Fast forward, I was a featured writer in several magazines for decades, a #1 best selling author and now publisher. I'm here to help you create and develop your story.

Let's have fun! I look forward to making this experience insightful and educational while bringing in some interesting ways of learning. Oh, Why Italy? I love Italy. It's FlavorFULL! I was supposed to be there this year hosting my authors retreat - well you know what happened? 

 Ciao - See you on Zoom soon!

OH WAIT - one more thing!

It's time to publish
