I'm looking for any opportunity to learn more about writing or speaking on specific subjects. I'm also an advocate for Fight Colorectal Cancer, a Washington, D.C.-based organization I advocate for in honor of my late mother, Diane.
I recently won a GOLD Award from the Nonfiction Authors Association for my online dating book, So Many Tools in the Internet Shed. I won an online tutorial competition at my cosmetology school. My video received 1600 votes, and I won $1,000. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=2DkCLI6XxwU
I don't own a business but I am finally a published author! Check out Online Dating: So Many Tools in the Internet Shed on Amazon and Smashwords. Thanks!
The second ebook will actually be turned into a three-part-series now. It's based on a blog I wrote on my experience attending beauty college as a more mature student. This memoir's first installment should be out in 2015.
I don't speak yet but having attended so many of these meetings now, it is definitely something I will pursue.
I'm a writer working on my second memoir based on another blog. I've toured with Cirque du Soleil and worked inside Folsom State Prison and for the Cemetery and Funeral Bureau. I also have a cosmetology license and two cats.
Loved the group tonight and appreciate all the advice I received regarding my blog/book. UPDATE: I won my school's competition :)
