How long have you been writing?

I have been writing for years. I worked in PR at UCLA, as an advertising agency copywriter (Easy as Dell and Have You Called Jenny Yet? are my taglines), I worked four years for Yahoo! Search Marketing and have written for many divisions of Disney. I started writing fiction a couple of years ago.

You must be at work on a novel, or short story collection to join this group: Have you written a novel length work you'd like critiqued?

I have written one novel. I'm counting on a little peer pressure to kick me into gear on my second one.

Have you ever critiqued another writer's work or had yours critiqued? Did you learn anything from it?

For two years, I was a member of the Pasadena Fiction Writer's Group. We worked in the same manner that you do, sharing and critiquing manuscripts before the meeting. I found it very helpful to receive other's impressions and suggestions. It also kept me writing because members were eager to hear what was going to happen next.

What genre(s) do you write? Have you checked the pages tab to see what genres this group reads and critiques? Is yours a genre we read?

Commercial women's fiction.

What is your writing schedule?

I have fallen off the wagon. I am currently editing a series of interviews of designers who have founded tech companies (DesignerFounders.com), and working with the interior design-focused startup, (RestyleSource.com). Those two projects have kept me very, very busy. However, I am almost done with the book project so my schedule will be opening up. I like to write early in the morning when I am sharpest.


Hello ANWW, thank you for giving me the opportunity to join your group. I look forward to meeting you.
