I am currently the editor of la demur magazine and finishing up ghost writing for another client. I have been a writer all my life but it really took off when I won an essay contest required by all seniors in my high school called "What Memorial Day Means to Me". Out of 200 entries, I won first place and moved from poetry to essay writing. I majored in Communications in college with a concentration in writing and had a 3.4 GPA in my major. I became an amateur photographer after I had my first child but have really built on that and become highly proficient at it. I also run my own business making jewelry which has become quite popular. I also set up and wrote all the blog entries for www.everydaycouponing.com.
I have started writing my first book and am taking it slow utilizing writing conferences, writing classes and books on writing. I have a library of writing books that would make your chin drop.
