Reginia has a vast business background and an ability to write from the heart about the trials and tribulations of family dynamics, love, joy, friendships and heartbreaks.

Reginia was born and raised in Reno, Nevada and her greatest influence was her loving and devoted mother, Virginia McKinney.  In 1988, Reginia's mother became ill and needed around-the-clock care.  Reginia's mother died shortly thereafter and Reginia moved to Fresno County.  Reginia's inspiration for Introspection came from the loss of her mother.  Reginia was not able to truly mourn the loss of her mother until ten years later.

The author felt a tremendous loss of family and wrote Introspection over a long period of examining the importance of a loving family.  Introspection, is based on the author's own desire to create what she lost after her mother's death in 1989.  Introspection explores the feeling of having a close-knit loving family.   "This book really highlights my Introspection experience on the loss of my mother who was the Matriarch of my extended family.  I did not truly mourn the loss of my mother until ten years after her death.  I began to write Introspection as a way of creating a family that I longed for and so desperately desired," stated Reginia. 

Introspection's main character, Gina, is an exciting, intriguing, dependable yet complicated character in a complex family dynamic.  The reader will see themselves in the main character's life challenges of dealing with the aspects of everyday life as opposed to what one truly feels inside but is fearful to display to the world.

One of Reginia's most notable accomplishments is her work with children as owner of foster care agencies located in Fresno County.  In 1988, Reginia put her belief of not turning her back on children to begin her foster care agency, Positive Attitude Outlook (PAO).  PAO has matched thousands of foster children with loving families out of its Fresno, Visalia, Bakersfield, and Rancho Cucamonga offices.  Reginia also created and published motivational and educational magazines for students in the Fresno County school system.  In 2002, Reginia continued to help children become successful by starting an academic program called PAO Phaze II which is an after school hours and summertime enrichment program.      

Reginia is the honored recipient of the 24 Women Of Influence Award.  The Award, granted by KSEE-TV24, NBC Fresno-Visalia, Kaiser Permanente Health System and Toyota, honors and recognizes women who have demonstrated dedication to the betterment of their family, company and community.  Reginia, as Award Recipient, joins an elite group of previously honored leaders, a group that stands up to challenges and shows support along with dedication to their community. 

In order to receive the 24 Women Of Influence Award, one must possess the gifts of giving, encouragement, compassion, leadership and charity.  In response to the honor of being an Award Recipient, Reginia stated, "These gifts are given by God.  It is a great feeling to be honored as a Women of Influence for your commitment to family, work and community."  Reginia went on to thank, among others, her mother from whom she inherited a special gift.  "The gift of giving, a gift not given to all, which I learned watching her empty our freezer to help family and friends."   The Award received a lot of media attention, most notably, magazine article entitled: "Meet the Women who are Changing Central California."  (Kaiser Permanente, Issue Date: 2004, Page 8) 

Reginia resides in Fresno County, California where she thrives as a wife, mother, grandmother and local business owner.  Reginia is a major force in Fresno County's thriving business community, in part, for her incredible work as owner of foster care agencies.

Introspection is available at events, on-line retailers such as Amazon.com, area bookstores, independent retailers or online at www.introspectionnovels.com

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
