I wrote my first short fiction sometime before I turned a two-digit age. It was pretty bad, but you have to start somewhere. I guess I showed some sort of talent by the 4th Grade, because my teacher (bless her heart) pulled me aside one day after school and told me I should really consider a career in writing.
I side-tracked awhile into the sciences, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. But while I was studying for that degree I discovered science writing, and so went on to get my Master’s degree in Journalism, with an emphasis in science communication.
I’ve been in marketing communications and public relations for more than 20 years, plying my craft to communicate complex topics to a lay audience. But on the side, my fiction and poetry has always been where my heart was.
To date, I’ve published two cook books and one business title, and have several others in the works.
I write book reviews for The Genre Traveler and The New York Journal of Books. As I receive the books to review, I add them to my "To Read" list here on Good Reads. You can see my queue for The Genre Traveler at: www.thegenretraveler.com/travel-reads/
