Memoir and non-fiction and dabble in poetry. Looking for other women who love to write and support their fellow women writers. Always looking for good speakers who can enhance my women writers group.
Phoenix Writers Club, the Ariziona Authors Association, the Willamette Writers Club, Oregon and Pub West - for the publishing industry. I have been writing since high school - or 40 plus years ago. I write something almost daily. The writer's life is where I am today and I am grateful.
Author - Gifts of Sisterhood - journey from grief to gratitide a memoir. President of SSWW, mentor to writers. Working on another book - Captive - about PTS and survival. I love to read and write book reviews too. Speak on writing topics.
I started the group 7 years ago and now have 70 members - this is a blessing. I started the group with the idea that maybe some women in the Scottsdale area would like to talk about their work with other women. That happened easily, over and over again, and women have told other women, and keep doing that monthly. Also, the speakers keep getting better and asking to come back and speak again. I have so many thank you notes and letters of appreciation I feel almost selfish at times, but I am grateful for this opportunity to be of service to the women who have chosen to be a part of this wonderful, energetic and professional group - we rock! The women of SSWW make this group grow and flourish - thank you ladies.
