Meet Jane

Life is to be lived – and lived fully! At least that’s my never to be humble opinion.

I am enthusiastic about life. Every day I get out of bed, put my feet on the floor and say Thank you, God, for giving me another day to play! I recently retired from a successful career as a professor, personal coach, business author, and motivational speaker. I looked around and asked myself, “What’s next?”Flag_Photo

Next turned out to be a new adventure. Meet Jane the mystery/romance author!  I’m writing stories!!!!

Stories have the power to reach people and inspire them. Stories help all of us see our lives up close, in 3D. We connect with characters we want to know, want to root for, want to embrace. Stories give us ways to change what we are doing and who we are being.

I hope that my stories will touch your heart. They are stories about people in transition, facing life’s challenges, people just like you and me. The magic of stories is that they offer you hints about how to accept whatever life throws at you and find the strength and courage to overcome, to live life fully with no regrets.

My other passion is mah jongg. Yes, I am a mahjonggaholic! I teach people how to play mah jongg and how to be more strategic during the game for the Williamsburg Area Learning Tree. The game is hot, hot, hot right now and my classes fill up quickly. I also play in tournaments whenever I can. Love the competitive vibe! I came in 9th out of over 360 people at the Las Vegas tournament in 2013. Look close and you’ll find a mah jongg thread in my stories.
