Started as a high school English teacher. Moved into advertising. Started a humorous blog about menopause (menologues) and it was picked up by Vibrant Nation and Alltop. Got a publisher as a client and felt it was the perfect storm. I write humorous mysteries with plot integrity - I don't use humor as an excuse to leave a million red herrings. My amateur sleuth is a menopausal woman with very normal flaws and possibly larger than average ego - after all, she is in advertising.
