I have published five books, one paranormal, one thriller, and three in the fantasy genre. Graphic design is my work and passion. With over 20 years of experience in marketing and design, I have worked with some of the most talented engineers and creatives in a myriad of industries ranging from civil and environmental engineering to literature. My clients come from all walks of life, including busy corporate executives and simple country folk. I pride myself in thinking outside the box, looking for ways to translate lengthy technical jargon into visuals that tell a story. Whether it is a book cover, info graphics, composites or just plain layout, I push myself on each and every project until both I and my client are satisfied.

But that's just MY story. I'm sure you have one too.

Wisdom of the Day: For those of you who think it takes a lot of money and/or education to reach your goals, let me be the first to tell you that you don't. You can start from anywhere, using tools you already have. Don't focus on what you can't do. Focus on what you can do with what you have. Let your imagination wander. Think of it as a playground where you can play all day. See the possibilities. Nothing is impossible. Nothing. The first step is to believe in yourself.

Well, enough of all that.

I live with my husband and two cats in a beautiful part of Texas, in the Piney Woods area.

Quite a bit has happened in the last six months. I lost my eye sight in one eye, lost my mother-in-law from complications of knee surgery, and lost quite a bit of weight (though not enough for my taste). I learned I'm a diabetic and I had to quit freelancing to go back to work full time. Whew. I'm just tired thinking about it all.

Why do I tell you all about this? Because life happens in the pursuit of our dreams.

In our quest to master our gifts, things happen all around us. We get distracted, lose our focus, and if we're not careful we will give up on our dreams. It's so easy to just let go, to lose our way. We mustn't. Like all things worthwhile, becoming a true creative takes work. And sometimes it is agonizing, arduous work. However, if we keep our nose to the grindstone, endeavor to push ourselves further and higher--never accepting mediocrity--we will achieve our goals. Sure, life will continue to happen. But don't ever let anyone tell you to let go of your dreams, that you're not good enough, or that you can't make it because so many others have failed. Listen to me, and listen well.

YES. YOU. CAN. DO. IT.

Folks, whatever has you distracted, it's time to resolve it. It's time to get down to business.
