More About the Author
Hi there and thanks for checking out my author page!
As a full-time self-employed freelance writer for 16+ years, several of my books show freelancers how they can develop and maintain successful careers, whether they're new to the business or are more seasoned. (Yeah, that's code for "older.") My latest books include Dollars and Deadlines: Make Money Writing Articles for Print and Online Markets (available on Kindle--print version coming soon); Writer for Hire: 101 Secrets to Freelance Success; and Goodbye Byline, Hello Big Bucks: The Writer's Guide to Making Money Ghostwriting and Coauthoring Books. Today most of my writing work is ghostwriting/coauthoring books for health, fitness, and nutrition professionals. In other words, I get paid to accumulate useless facts that may or may not come in handy if I ever get on Jeopardy.
I'm a novelist too. I write contemporary women's fiction--books about women today, the problems they face, and how they overcome them. I've always been fascinated by relationships, and love writing about them. My newest novel, The Honesty Index, explores the lives of two former "BFF" who are now in their mid-30s and whose lives have grown apart--yet who still need each other more than ever before. My earlier two books, Did you Get the Vibe? (available in print and on Kindle), and White Bikini Panties (available on Kindle) are "chick lit" and are fun, engaging reads. And I like my characters to figure out how to solve their own problems--just like in "real life."
What else should you know? I'm the mom of two little kids who struggles to make time to write fiction; I've lived in the Chicago suburbs (Downers Grove) for fourteen years; and like most women, I'm constantly trying to find that work/life balance. Most days I fail but am having a great time regardless. Thanks for checking out my page, and I hope you enjoy my work!
