Minette Riordan

As the founder and president of Scissortail Publishing, Dr. Minette Riordan has learned that communication and passion are the keys to success in life and business. Minette's passion for connecting people to each other is deeply rooted in her belief that it is our connection to spirit, to self and to others that is the foundation of true happiness.  Through Minette's work as a teacher, a writer, a speaker, a community volunteer and a business owner, she has educated thousands of people on the subjects of communication, commitment, and connection.


Minette is passionate about education as her own college history shows. She has a B.A. in Spanish from Texas A&M University and an M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. She has a Ph.D. From Stanford University focused on 20th Century Latin American Literature. She has taught college, high school and adult enrichment classes on a variety of subjects including Spanish language, literature, women's literature, world religions, nature writing and creative writing. 

Before launching her own business Minette taught at a private high school in northern California for troubled teens. After leaving her teaching position, Minette relocated to Estes Park, Colorado. While there she designed and taught a series of creative writing classes based on journaling, nature writing and spiritual growth.

By 2002, Minette and her family had relocated to Plano, Texas, following her husband's job in the telecommunications industry. In fall of 2002 Minette launched her company, Scissortail Publishing. In February of 2003, she printed the first issue of what would become North Texas Kids. In seven short years, she has grown her magazine from a small quarterly newspaper with a print run of 20,000 to a monthly magazine with an average print run of 50,000 magazines. 

She recently launched her own networking group called WEBB - Women Engaged in Building Business, a networking and educational group for women business owners in the Dallas area.
