Journalist turned spike-heeled prosecutor turned award-winning essayist and photographer proves it's never too late to make mid-course corrections!


Background Information

After a successful career as a newspaper journalist and freelance writer, I changed career horses following a serious riding accident and went to law school at the age of forty.  I've been a prosecuting attorney now for eleven years, and absolutely love the work.  However, the keyboard drew me back to creative writing only a few years out of law school.  It turns out that while being a lawyer is "what I do," being a writer is "who I am."  Friends encouraged me to start blogging essays while, as I like to say, "life got in the way" of the suspense novel I had started. The essays led to some writing awards, which in turn prompted me to turn the essays into first one book, then another, and then recently, a third. I wouldn't change a thing about the experience, it has been a truly amazing personal journey.

Accomplishments

My first two books, "Running with Stilettos" and "Heck on Heels" chalked up a Silver IPPY Award, a Mom's Choice Awards, finalist status in the Royal Palm Literary Awards and Book of the Year Award contests, and first and second place finishes in the National Federation of Press Women's annual communications contests.

Additional Information

My third essay collection, "Fabulous in Flats," just went live in May, 2011. And my website, www.runningwithstilettos.com, picked up a first place award recently from the NFPW for both "web content for special interest sites" and "feature writing for the web."
