Here’s the latest technical communication blog post at
It’s a new year everyone and I wanted to take the time to wish everyone an exciting and fresh start. I’d also like everyone to know that a new semester at California State University Dominguez Hills starts next week on 1/12/15 and I will be teaching classes for the College of Extended & International Education.
If you are looking to kick off the new year with adding new skill sets in your writing, getting a certificate or just a refresher and would like to learn online instead of driving to a University then check out the classes offered in the completely online certificate program in Technical Communication at CSUDH.
I teach the Advanced Technical Communications course and the Information Design course where we work on portfolio pieces providing the student with samples to present to potential employers as well as practical learning experience. I’ve had the privilege of having both international students from other countries such as Russia and Japan to local SoCal students so please take a moment to check out our program.

I’ve been blogging lately. On my creative writing blog, Zen Word of Creative Writing, I’ve posted a tip I use to capture my ideas anytime.
I am also going to blog at CSUDH faculty blog. MY current post will be about keeping students engaged in online courses. The link for California State University Dominguez Hills is at http://www.csudh.edu/ When I have the link for the faculty blog I’ll post.
Taking a break from my editing of a YA novel I am writing to catch up on some personal projects. Mainly a family cookbook and memoir based on my childhood and how everyone in my family got together over food, especially at the holidays. I’m also catching up on my photography, which is to say capturing as many beautiful blooms as possible at Descanso Gardens. It’s my favorite place to think of new stories and take my laptop to write when I need inspiration. The blooms are beautiful now.
