BIO

I grew up on the Jersey Shore married a young marine at 19 years old and supported my spouse in service to the Marine Corp for over 30 years. Together we had three children and grew into a family of five. Home was wherever the Marine Corp sent us. My families' trials, tribulations, and joys become the catalyst for the popular children's books series Uncle Sam's Kids. The series addresses the fears and anxieties children and families experience during military life and how to use positive coping skills to bring about change in thinking and behavior.

For 20 years and counting  I taught at the collegiate level. My experience as an instructor at the United States Military Academy, West Point brought authenticity to the classroom as I shared my  life experiences in military family life. In 2003, my first book, "Uncle Sam's Kids When Duty Calls," was recommended by Former First Lady Laura Bush. The interview conducted by Tim Russet with guest Caroline Kennedy quoted Mrs. Mush saying "It is a great resource for families who want to know what it's like to serve." Uncle Sam's Kids Moving Again, Mom, the second book in the series, was selected by Bonnie Amos, wife of the 35th commandant of the Marine Corp was recommended reading. Her newest book, "Uncle Sam's Kids Healing Heroes, pays tribute to our brave wounded warriors and their families. "Healing Heroes" shows us how to use compassion and courage in the face of adversity. Overall, the Uncle Sam's Kids series addresses how to deal with worry, anger, detachment sadness and recovery while discovering the strength in family. and community. My Uncle Sam's Kids books are in alignment with my research on resiliency and positive copying skills in the real world.
