I write novels about women facing the realities of life while also taking time out to laugh, learn, and love. My branding statement is: Women's Journeys with a Twist of Wit. My novel A Hunka Hunka Nursing Love (Soul Mate Publishing) will be released as an e-book in Summer 2013 and in print in Spring 2014.
I also write rhyming current-event tweets that can be viewed on Twitter or Facebook.
Before I started writing fiction, I was a print journalist for 24 years. I worked for daily newspapers in Rock Island, Ill., and Madison, Wis.; for a Chicago-based trade journal that covered the radio and TV industry; and as special projects editor for the Indianapolis Business Journal. I started a couple of special sections for women, one of which won two state awards, while the other won a national award.
