Short Bio-
Known as “Spunk On A Stick,” Wolfe is a member of the National Speakers Association and a motivational speaker. She’s conducted seminars on book publishing and promoting for five years and assisted writers through several author services. Her other titles include “Overcoming Obstacles With SPUNK!” which ties her goal-setting and leadership seminar’s information together, and a YA series, “The Circle of Friends.” Wolfe travels extensively for media interviews and speaking engagements, maintains a dozen websites & blogs, and contributes to several other sites and newsletters.

Congrats Diane! She's worked hard on this project and I wish her all the best with its success.

Quick Note: I'll be back on Friday with my reflections on the Overcoming Adversity blogfest and what happens next. In the meantime, Andrew and I want to once again say a massive THANK YOU to each and every one of you who contributed, because I know that some of those stories can't have been easy to write and share. It was emotional to say the least. You're all an inspiration and you rock!
