Zany Zia's Hats to Where


About me...


As a professional storyteller, my desire is to inspire, educate and entertain. I am an optimistic and goal-driven, independent individual with a passion for helping people see new possibilities for their lives, their careers and their success.

I hold a bachelor's in journalism from Sam Houston State University with a focus in advertising and photography. The combined study of words and imagery has proven beneficial to my career as a writer, editor, book coach and marketing professional. I've written hundreds of articles and interviewed local folks, celebrities and successful entrepreneurs. I love helping people share their stories, and I'd love to help you tell yours.

I am also the author of the young readers' adventure series: Zany Zia's Hats to Where.The books blend fact with fiction while teaching valuable life lessons in a fun and engaging way.

Personal development has been part of my life for the past 19 years. That's why, in addition to my samples of my writing and editing work, you'll find success resources on my site. Life, I believe, is what we make it. We can either complain about what doesn't suit us or work to create a life we love. My choice is to follow the advice of Henry David Thoreau and live the life I have imagined. I encourage you do the same.

One more thing about me… I don't like to sit still. I love to travel and explore new places. I've lived in six different cities in the past 10 years and am making plans to create a totally mobile lifestyle. I work with clients across the United States from my home office... or wherever I happen to be traveling at the time.
