She received a law degree, with honors, from the University of Minnesota where she was a successful moot court competitor. Her commitment to social justice led her to a staff attorney position with Kansas Legal Services where she represented abused women and children in family law cases. With a large case load, and near daily courtroom appearances, she also prevailed on two significant appellate decisions. She was the director of a non-profit organization working with at-risk mothers. She has training in family law mediation and is a certified life coach, knowledge that helped her significantly while raising four sons. After a very rewarding experience co-authoring and publishing a memoir with a WWII veteran, (A Drop in the Night, the Life and Secret Mission of a WW II Airman) she founded Flint Hills Publishing in 2014 and has dedicated herself to supporting books, over 40 titles to date, that have positive messages for the world.

Thea will be teaching a session on the following topic: 

Protecting Your Rights as a Writer: Writing, Publishing, and the Law What do writers need to know to steer clear of legal problems? Being an author requires you to understand you’ve created a business, and consequently, there are some down and dirty things you need to know about: defamation and other tort law claims, tax issues, contract provisions. If these matters are not fully understood before signing, an author could spend sleepless nights full of regret. Led by a former social justice lawyer turned publisher, this presentation introduces authors to a multitude of relevant legal issues with the idea that it is much better to avoid a problem than to have to fight to fix it. Recipients will receive an ebook written by the presenter and sample forms.
