Many journalists look forward to the day they publish their first novel, while some perfect their news reporting and become famous for their expertise and notoriety, their awards and recognition. I started out in journalism but took a wide swath through grant writing, edit gigs for major corporate publications and public relations materials. Then, I wrote novels. The recent Ghost Orchid was a work of inspiration full of the beauty that so overwhelms me when I visit the Everglades and touched with the beauty of love as I shared my writing experience with my muse.
Southwest Spotlight is a newsprint magazine just under a year old that has a 20,000 distribution to households and racks in well-traveled Southwest Florida locations. It's an exciting magazine because it tells a story about local events and special places, a story that is enjoyed by people in the local community. The writers are a combination of journalists and storytellers. I am one of the contributors. I'm a member of the Naples Press Club and a writer for Southwest Spotlight among my credits, after I wrote my novel and my short stories. I write an article monthly. My first August article? " Quest for the Ghost Orchid."'
