She has since authored 27 nonfiction books and over 1500 articles for or about children. When she isn’t researching or writing, she teaches workshops for at-risk youth, taking weekly writing and literacy programs into southwest Florida schools. She also presents as reading, literacy, and teachers’ conferences.
She holds a B.A. degree in English Language (writing and linguistics) from Eastern Michigan University and an M.S. in education (with an emphasis on writing anxiety/reluctance) from Capella University. She teaches at several local universities in the area.
Last month’s potluck meeting for members and guests was a huge success. The Speed Dating for Authors was fun and informative. Everyone got to know each other better. Our thanks to Joanne Tailele, president of Marco Island Writers, for orchestrating it.
Marco Island Writers meet at the Marco Center for the Arts, 1010 Winterberry Dr. the 2nd Wednesday of every month. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Meetings run from 6-8pm. First time visitors are always free.
