PS – I Got a Job

My goal has been to consistently publish a blog once a week, usually a Tuesday. That goal wasn’t always met but I managed it for the most part. I will need to find a new blogging rhythm because…

I’m thrilled to announce, after more than a year of searching, I was hired as a part-time manager to the Bookstore at St. Edward’s University, also my alma mater.


It was my privilege to counsel students for nearly a decade. I got to be apart of hundreds of developing stories as students worked out what they were doing and why.

When I took time away from counseling to raise my family, I explored writing professionally and now there’s no going back.

The only drawback to writing full-time was my increasing sense of restlessness. I have a lot of energy and experience. Prior to my work as a counselor, I put myself through college at the same Bookstore I now find myself employed with.

What can I say, I know books.

It’s a thrill and an honor to be back. I have time for a career in books and in writing. It’s so perfect it borders the fantastic.
