Ms. Lateiner is the author of “Timeless Dance: A Story of Change and Loss.” This book details her journey she began nearly 25 years ago, when her adult son transitioned to become a new daughter, leading to her publication of her part memoir, biography and primer for gender diversity, according to a press release.

In addition to promoting her book, she speaks throughout the country in a variety of settings to further understanding of gender diversity, LGBTQ and beyond.

Ms. Lateiner is an author, writing coach, hike and write facilitator and a gender diversity educator. She is also an advocate for gender minority youth with over 20 years of experience as a developmental psychologist and mental health clinician.

She served on the University of Medicine and Dentistry’s Task Force on LGBTQ issues; the first lady of Phoenix’s Task Force on Bullying; and presented workshops on transgender issues and bullying.

Her publication opened opportunities to speak about gender diversity both past and present, in addition to sharing her personal experiences, a release states.

The Scottsdale Society of Women Writers aims to give members access to events of interest; a format for exchanging ideas; an opportunity to network with other women writers and authors; an alliance with professionals relating to writing, publishing and marketing of books; and camaraderie and support.
