I am a former journalist working as an author and corporate communications professional. Currently, I am working on my first novel, The Cottage on Palm Court, and support internal and leader communications in the banking industry.
How do those two professions fit together? I am a writer first and foremost. I have worked in communications for more than 14 years. I landed my first newspaper column at the age of 13. I have always wanted to write a book, and I decided it was time to make it happen. My first manuscript is in its second draft. I am working on applying changes recommended by my beta readers. I have a second group of reviewers ready to read the polished version.
I love all things creative, especially writing, photography and graphic design. I feel fortunate that I have been able to pursue a career in the field where my passion lies.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications from the University of Tennessee, and I am continuously looking for opportunities to be creative.
