I started writing stories on an ancient Underwood typewriter when I was about seven years old.
My resume as a writer includes eight years as a weekly newspaper columnist. I have worked as a writer, editor, columnist, reporter, and technical writer. In the past I have worked as a computer technician both on the Navy’s E-2 flight and tactical simulators at NAS Miramar, California, and I have been an IT gal on wide-area computer networks. I have had many other jobs and have skills sets outside the writing arena as well.
I have published a few short stories and one poem (see side bar) and spent a few years as a college composition professor while I worked toward my Masters degree in Rhetoric and Writing. My Bachelors is in Education. I spent my career as a technical writer for various corporations that design and build aircraft carriers and aerospace vehicle.
I was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, and lived in Southern California for 3 decades before retiring to Eastern Tennessee. I am a short brunette with silver streaks, with an eye color that varies according to my mood.
In Revelation 11:3-9, two witnesses with paranormal abilities, preach for 1233 days in Jerusalem during the End Time. MadMen tells their backstory.
MadMen is the futuristic diary of Hannah Augustine, a clairvoyant survivor, who searches for personal peace after the arrival of her formal fiancé, her psychic equal, the talented, but crazed William Martin.
Together they become part of a community of survivors, some who are also “talented”. The story presents power conflicts from such associations in the shattered United States.
MadMen’s controversial content – including unique belief systems, blatant Christian references and sacred rites – as well as the use of pot and alcohol, sexual content, and polygamy – may equally disturb atheist or Christian.
