I have always dreamed of writing a book. Before I retired, I was a State Information Technology Project Manager, and a closet writer of poetry to those I loved – family, and special people in my life. But, I always dreamed of writing a book.
After retirement, cancer slowed me down, but I finally self-published in November of 2016, a novel called Dancing Up the Ladder. Through the challenging process of writing, publishing and (poor) marketing, I saw a need for affordable and easy access to a Writer’s Conference in my local Community.
Today, I’m the project manager for the Elk Grove Writer’s Conference, I chair the Elk Grove Writers Guild, work on a second book, and chair weekly meetings of the Elk Grove Senior Center Writing Group.
I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband, Jim Holder, 4 children, 7 grandchildren and I’m expecting my first great-grandchild, Violet, due 4/22/2018.
