Will you consider an acclaimed professional writer, author of books, all issued by major publishers? The last, a memoir called "Will You Ever Forgive Me?", was published by Simon & Schuster two years ago. The New York Times Book Review" raved; Vanity Fair editor Henry Alford referred to my "jeweled" prose. Concision? The book was 127 pages. I've also written biographies of Dorothy Kilgallen, Estee Lauder, and Tallulah Bankhead. I've done copyedited for American Express.

I am a 45 year old wife, mother and grandmother. I am very articulate. I have been creative in writing since I was very young. I think of Ernest Hemingway when he stated in "Death in the Afternoon", A serious writer is not to be confounded with a solemn writer. A serious writer may be a hawk or a buzzard or even a popinjay, but a solemn writer is always a bloody owl. And I am a perfectionist. There has not been anything in my life that I have set out to do that I have not achieved!
