Speaker Topics: 
Before I became a caregiver for my adult disabled son, I was a high school English teacher, so I'm able and willing to present on all levels of writing craft, from the basics of story development and the importance of mechanics and grammar, up to more advanced topics like realistic dialogue development and building believable characters. I can also present on the ins and outs of indie publishing, as it pertains to my journey. I would love to do this - I miss the classroom VERY much! :)
