I wrote my first poem at age eight, just when I was learning about the magic of words. As a youngster, I started a local newspaper. It was very local, just my street. I'd go up and down the street knocking on doors asking my neighbors for "news." In high school and college I worked on the school newspaper and yearbook. I studied the English language, literature and journalism.
After a brief stint on as a city newspaper journalist, I joined Reader's Digest, where I served as an editor for thirteen years. After returning to school for my MBA, I put my new skills to work for corporate America. I worked at PepsiCo, Inc. for about three decades writing corporate reports, newsletters, press releases, speeches, videos and countless other corporate communications.
So now I've begun a new phase of life, writing for the joy of it. I have two books out, appeared in two anthologies and am now introducing "Dirty Linen: How Women Sued the Reader's Digest and Changed History," my personal account of how I joined with seven other women to fight what we believed was sexual discrimination at the publishing empire.
I have two wonderful adult children and live with my husband in Arizona.
