This book helps you dig deep and examine your own creative roots, so you can ensure that you are giving yourself the nutrients you need to blossom.

A Few Pages From The Book


Where it all started for Connie and a welcome to the garden of creativity.

Our Unique Creative Process

We each have our own unique process for creativity. How we address problems, find solutions and resolve obstacles to achieve a successful conclusions.

Our Story

There are pivotal moments throughout our lives that shape us and move us in directions. What if you were able to watch your character in a play would you see yourself more objectively.


Any tangible results? Yep, there are two. One, I applied for my first writing residency and got accepted! Two, I set January 1st as my goal to turn over my business to my daughter. All is in order for me to step away from a 40-year career (and a paycheck) and head into the scary world of writing.
