I had the pleasure of meeting Sabrina Schultz last September following a speaking engagement. As we talked, she explained that she was vice president of the CSBSJU Marketing Club and asked if I would consider taking on some interns to help market my book.

The Interns Take Over

My February calendar is filling up with exciting events. I’ve got speaking engagements and author signings scheduled, along with a much-anticipated get away with my husband.

Gift Guide for College Students

Ho! Ho! Help? Once your kids move away, it’s hard to gauge what they want or need. How do you fill their stockings this holiday season? Instead of guessing, I went straight to the savviest shoppers on the team…our college interns. I asked them to create a holiday wish list to help parents shop for their college students. Happy Holidays from the

Meet the Interns!

I’m thrilled to announce Radi to Write has just won the lottery—the intern lottery, that is. We’ve now got six talented college students sharing their skills while learning more about public relations, marketing and book publishing. How did this BIG WIN happen, you ask? Some might call it luck. Others may say timing. I call it divine intervention. Here’s how

College: Then & Now

Our daughter is a senior in high school, so we’re swimming in a sea of admissions brochures and ACTs. Of 529s and budgeting spreadsheets. Of unpredictable emotions and fear of the unknown—ours and hers. And yes, of college visits. It’s overwhelming, a little like buying a car.
