A friend recently likened Connie’s life to an air traffic controller with multiple powerful jets taxiing on separate runways. Her current endeavors include: Word Wizard Services, a versatile freelance copywriting service, Kiko Designs, an Etsy jewelry shop, offering her unique creations, a trilogy of middle grade novels due to be published this year, and a blossoming screenwriting career, complete with professional representation and more than a dozen screenplays under her belt.
Connie has been happily married to her soul mate and biggest supporter for 4 decades. She is the proud mom of 3 terrific grownups and Nana to 6 amazing grandchildren. Connie has been a Buddhist for nearly 5 decades. She was born and raised in Oregon, but in addition to life in the beautiful Pacific NW, has had the opportunity to live in the deep south and southern California. She loves to travel and has relished visits to Australia, Canada, Japan, Hawaii, Ireland, Mexico, Tasmania, France, Italy and more than half the states in the US, with several destinations still on her bucket list. Connie has been an avid swimmer and dedicated Yogini for many years, finding both water and yoga to be soothing for the body, mind and soul. She is also a devoted Dog Mom to Buddy Barr, the family’s fur baby.
