Butte, MT – “My short stories and essays have been published in various small magazines throughout the years, as well as in Playgirl and Redbook. I won second place in Redbook’s Second Annual Young Writer’s Contest. I was awarded a yearlong literary fellowship at The Rocky Mountain Women’s Institute. I earned a Bachelor’s (summa cum laude, phi beta kappa) and a Master’s Degree in creative writing from the University of Denver. I wrote a series of educational children’s stories that were used throughout the New York public school system. For several years during my teens and twenties, I could hardly go a day without being labeled “promising.””
