I've had the great fortune of working in the publishing industry for (gulp) nearly 3 decades. Yep, I'm no spring chicken. I first worked as an editor for Janus Books that published supplementary materials for special-needs adolescent students. I wrote and edited science, mathematics, home economics, job skills, and social studies subjects. After a few years, I decided to become a freelancer. This July, I'll have been at it for 24 years. As an independent writer, I have written career and job skills books, as well as educational materials for the adult literacy audience.
