The Full Story
She has written hundreds of articles on a variety of subjects, including world travel, breast cancer, and family issues. She has been published by Guideposts, International Living Magazine, Coping with Cancer and Woman's World Magazine.
Connie enjoys sharing her love of writing at writing conferences, where she teaches “How to Write a Winning Chicken Soup Story” and “How to Become a Travel Writer."
As a child, Connie lived in Japan while her dad was in the Air Force and later in Italy for six years where her older son was born and ten years in Cuenca, Ecuador where she and her husband volunteered in orphanages and taught English as a Second Language.
Connie is passionate about coffee, dark chocolate, and words—not necessarily in that order.
She and her husband, Mark, have two grown sons, two lovely daughter-in-loves, and four grandchildren. When not writing or speaking, Connie enjoys shell collecting and diving for sand dollars in the emerald green waters of Anna Maria Island, Florida—her home.
