I'm a working writer; that is, I write every day and have written several books.
The newest book is Back Again to Me, a novel about adoption. Prior to that, I wrote three books in two years--and I don't recommend that!They are Talking Your Way to the Top: Business English that Works (Prometheus Books 2006); A Love for Learning: Motivation and the Gifted Child (with Carol Strip Whitney, Ph.D.)(Great Potential Press, 2007), and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Difficult Conversations (Alpha Books, September 2007).
I also like to help other writers try to achieve their dreams, so I work as a book doctor/independent editor as well.
You can find out all about that part of my life at www.midwestbookdocs.com.
You'll also find several of my articles at www. ezinearticles.com and I occasionally blog at amazon.com, too. But my blogspot blogs--write better now and gretchen's writing life--are far and away the most active.
So people tell me they read this blog because it helps them learn about writing and how to use English with greater precision. And then I write, as I did in the last post, about making a "statment." Which proves only that everyone, without exception, needs an editor. Sigh....
