I’ve loved writing as long as I can remember and my first published work was actually some poetry in the high school yearbook (we didn’t have a school newspaper) and then I wrote some book manuscripts that sat in my desk drawer for a very long time.
My first paid and printed pieces were for two cosmetology trade magazines; one for students and one for instructors, and I still have the very first essay in a frame today. I will always be thankful to and remember the editor who believed in me and my work.
Today, I am connected to her on LinkedIn – one of the better benefits of social media. Looking forward to seeing more of my work on the slick, glossy pages of magazines or as part of their digital content!
