I am a pure "A-Type" with my fingers in many pies. Novels, short stories and a column, active in multiple writers groups. Can't figure out how to use my spare 2 minutes each day.


Background Information

My background is extremely varied, having been involved in such diverse fields as Interior Design, Barter, Marketing and Promotion, Travel and more. My wonderful writers groups and the conferences and workshops I've attended have had a major influence on my writing. I went from a magazine article writer to a novelist, but when I first made the transition I thought I knew how to write fiction. Boy, did I have a lot to learn.

With eleven published novels, multiple short stories and over 500 columns about the craft and business of writing for  Examiner.com plus all of the workshops I've developed, I finally feel justified in saying I write fiction. Just when I thought that was enough, I've now ventured into writing true crime as well, co-authoring with Dennis N. Griffin. Our first book together was LA BELLA MAFIA, Bella Capo's true story about surviving abuse despite overwhelming odds and going on to dedicate her life to helping abuse victims. Our second book is currently in work. IZZY AND ME is the true story of a daughter whose father was hairstylist to the stars in Las Vegas, an associate of the Mob, an entertainer, restauranteur, and all around personality. His flaw? Behind closed doors he abused his wife and daughter (profoundly affecting their lives) and had a very violent side to his nature.

I also write the Silver Sisters Mysteries series with my real life sister Phyllice Bradner. The second edition of the AWARD-WINNING  first book in the series, A CORPSE IN THE SOUP, has just been released in digital and paperback formats (also available in audio) and the second book (TERROR IN A TEAPOT) and third book (VANISHING ACT IN VEGAS) will be re-released in late 2014 and early 2015 respectively. A fourth book (VANISHING ACT IN VEGAS) is in the works.

Whew! I'm making myself tired.

 

 

Birth Place
Chicago, IL USA
Accomplishments

I have written three award winning short stories and the Silver Sisters Mystery, A Corpse in the Soup, was named best audio book mystery in 2007 by USA Book News. Who's Got the Money? (now out of print) was a FINALIST in the USA Book News Best Books Awards. It has been re-released as RIPOFF.

I have certifications that have nothing to do with writing, like Member of the Institute of Residential Marketing back in my interior design days when I was Director of Design for residential developers.

My crowning achievement in my mind is getting from being too shy to speak to developing and giving writer's workshops that consistently get high marks. And my palms are no longer sweaty nor does my voice shake!

Additional Information

I write columns for the Las Vegas and Los Angeles editions of Examiner.com. 39 of the columns became the handy writers guidebook Writers' Tricks of the Trade.
