Shalamar Enterprises ~ Overview

In 1996 my meandering path of life brought me to the beautiful Beaver Valley in Grey County, Ontario. A one-of-a-kind fieldstone house on a spectacular piece of land became my home and source of inspiration. In this sacred setting I established “Shalamar Enterprises”, a business created for the publication of poetry collections and the scheduling of motivational speaking engagements.

I believe that children come into this world with an awareness of who we were born to be; however, for many reasons, it takes some of us a long time to fully embrace the unique gifts with which we have been blessed. Having retired from teaching in 2006, I am deeply grateful that I am now celebrating life as a full-time poet and inspirational speaker. Prior to teaching, I accumulated a wealth of experiences from a variety of occupations which I credit with helping me to develop a spirit of compassion and a deep appreciation for the strength of the human spirit.

Shalamar Enterprises is an umbrella under which a variety of initiatives have found the shelter needed to emerge into their own light:

The production of poetry collections and CDs which are allowing me to share the reflections of a lifetime;

My concept called “Precious Gems” which strives to help people realize exciting changes in our unique struggles; 

The creation of The Precious Gems Poetry Club;

A variety of public speaking appearances which continue to be a joy: pulpit relief, community celebrations, small and large group gatherings of people who seek to receive a “spiritual tune-up!”

A role as a narrator which has been very instrumental in my expansion into the internet world. As the first narrator for MeadowLane Children’s Stories, I bring to life Donna Mann’s lovely farm tales about real animals, whimsical creatures and lovable kids.
