I write fiction (both short stories and novels), am a published author, and am currently un-agented. I’m a member of the Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. I freely admit that I devote way less time to writing than I wish I could!
Currently writing a mystery series featuring a smart but stubborn former actress, I also have a novel in the drawer about an early 40’s professional woman who decides to have a baby on her own and ends up falling in love with her unwitting sperm donor. This would be a great movie. Jennifer Aniston, call me.
I recently made a job change – previously at the American Dental Association, I’m now the CEO/Executive Director at the Michigan Dental Association, where both leadership and staff are committed to advancing the profession and the public’s oral health!
I’m the proud mom of two grown-up sons and two ridiculously pampered pugs, as well as a cat who definitely does not get enough attention. I’ve been married since 1976 to the same guy, who is well-broken in by now, love books, movies, and musicals, and have too many magazine subscriptions. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology (just enough to be dangerous) and an MBA in marketing (ditto).
With well over 300 blog posts, I’m an experienced blogger. But I still find it hard to bring up at parties. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, but please – no spam! Unless it is the delicious, popular-in-Hawaii, canned treat.
