I am a retired female looking for a home-based job. I have not (as yet) been published, but I have been writing short stories for years. I have been "in print". (My apartment complex has a monthly newsletter.) I have been writing short stories (fiction and non-fiction) for many years. I come from an environmental background. I worked for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for 30 years. Some of my specialties included the following fields: Finance, Solid and Hazardous Waste Management, and Forestry Management. I am not a highly skilled technical writer because I have simply not been trained in that venue. I feel that I could write about anything, given the supporting research. I received an MBA from Colorado Technical University-Online in 2007, at the age of 66. All in all, I am a very well-rounded individual with many hobbies, my favorite being writing. My goal in life is to be published and receive national recognition for my writing skills, in the format of a high-profile magazine or a book of short stories. Thank you for this opportunity.
