Not only is she an astute student of life and human nature, she is also a distinguished collegian with honors and degrees including accounting and computer science. Professionally, she has programmed numerous business applications and websites. She has written many popular educational programs, including the best seller, Math Blaster, for Davidson & Associates. Three of the programs she wrote, Word Attack 3, Spell It Plus, and Grammar Games are still available for purchase on Amazon.
These days her priority is motherhood, including home tutoring her daughter, teaching math and history in the local mom's school, and organizing Special Olympics in the area. Still pursuing personal growth, she is now learning how to write and publish books as well as learning to be a foreign currency trader.
She fell in love with reading when she was a little girl, and now hopes to engender this love in a new generation through her written works. May you enjoy reading this book as much as she did writing it!

About the Editor
I had so much fun working with Janele Williams as she helped me edit my book. She was helpful, corrected me when I needed it, and was very supportive. Work isn't supposed to be this much fun, is it?
About the Publisher
Xlibris is the first company I used to self publish. Create Space is the second one I used. It required a little more work from me, but it was free to publish, and my books are printed on demand. This means they are not printed until they are sold.
