What's Up at Inspiredprints?
Welcome! Our platform now includes writing as a focus, and now you can be inspired by reading
the latest blog posts,
an occasional poem,
excerpts from my work-in-progress,
and NEW for 2023
a plan to publish the first Children's book for
early readers, aged 7-10.
Here's a clue: it's based on a 4th grader,
"Lefty Lucy - A left-handed girl in a right-handed world."
Stay tuned for publication dates and in-person readings for the first book in a series of three.
I'm excited to be able to offer Content Writing to inspire change, and accepting change in order to move forward is the over-arching theme behind much of my writing. I lost my spouse ten years ago, and had to find a way to create a new life for myself, an unexpected change at mid-life.
I've taken several writing courses over the past few years, and have been gradually working on writing about my experiences with the death of my spouse, and how I grieved and learned to cope afterward. Due to the trials I faced at these times, and the choices I made over these past several years, my work-in-progress and much of my content writing is for people trying to transition through difficult times of their life, making new choices and connections to keep moving forward, beyond loss and grief, and other challenging times. My life eventually changed for the better, by intentionally focusing forward and being open to change to be happy again, and being of service to others. It is possible to bounce back from grief and despair and be joyful!
My articles are now being published monthly and quarterly in newsletters and papers local to the Syracuse, NY region. Beyond that, in 2023 I'm creating a collection of essays from my WIP with the intent to publish for the non-fiction lover & self-help reader who needs some inspiration to keep moving forward. Don't we all sometimes?
I studied Photography & Graphic Design during my college days, so I'm also a Photographer, shooting mostly for business clients, headshots, products, events, groups, pets.
And I create Greeting Cards from my photos too, in order to help you connect with others to make them feel special, supported, and connected by simply sending a card.
These services and products are also available on this website.
