About Me
I'm a writer and business owner (Greenfire Creative, LLC). My freelance work includes the Legacy Award winning book, "High IQ Kids: Collected Insights, Information, and Personal Stories from the Experts," and "Is Your Child Bipolar? The Definitive Resource on How to Identify, Treat, and Thrive with a Bipolar Child" (by Mary Ann Mcdonnell & Janet Wozniak with Judy Fort Brenneman). I'm also an interpretive writer, trainer, and planner ("interpretive" refers to exhibits and programs at museums, national parks, zoos, etc.), and I created and present the Interpretive Writing Intensive and Advanced Interpretive Writing workshops as well as writing workshops on fiction and creative nonfiction. My essays and creative nonfiction have appeared in a variety of publications.

Favorite Word:

This is not my favorite word, but it is what I'm frustrated about at the moment, because my favorite word is not in Vis. Th.'s dictionary. My favorite word is: KAKABEKIA. It's the genus name of a precambrian microbe (there are modern ones still here as well as fossilized ones). I like the word because of the story of its discovery and because of its sound and rhythm (I like "noisy" words!)

Least Favorite Word:

Actually, my least favorite word is probably in the dictionary, but why would I type it and have it visible on my profile page? My least favorite word is commonly referred to in the media as: "the 'f' word" I don't like this word because it is LAZY. C'mon all you tough guys who think it's so cool to use it; be creative with your profanity! (Read a little Shakespere, learn the art of the insult!)
