I've been creating and contributing to the gift and publishing industry for thirty years. My work is often identified by my proprietary, dancing lettering. I am most known for my poem beginning, "Courage doesn't always roar..."I am approaching a dozen published books and continue to create, write, craft and inspire myself and others.

A LIFELONG Leadership Story
Taken from LEAN FORWARD INTO YOUR LIFE, Conari Press, 2007, Mary Anne Radmacher From early in my childhood I heard my father recount a story which typified his management and leadership style. The building in which he was a graveyard-shift foreman had sheet metal for a roof.  It was a good thing

Upset About the Hobby Lobby / Supreme Court Decision
Or, are you celebratory of the decision?  In any event, people often inquire what can one person do about such large matters? I offer a sixty word summary first and then in 1051 words I explore more deeply.  My perspective is one of chagrin at the Constitutional compromise that the decision repres
