About Me

my pic for promotion]   I am a Michigan native who has enjoyed reading and writing since 1963. Though I studied medicinal chemistry at the University of Michigan, my passion has always been writing.

I had been awarded third place for her nonfiction short story about my grandfather’s escape from   Poland. Later, rewrote this story and was published in the “Polish American Journal” as “”From the Pages of Grandfather’s Life” and has republished it on Amazon.com as a short story.

I took creative and journalism courses to help transition to fulfill my dream of becoming a writer. I worked as an intern for Port Huron’s ‘The Times Herald”, and also wrote, edited and did the layout or the Blue Water Multiple Sclerosis newsletters “Thumb Prints.”

I also write two blogs promoting my fellow authors.

My works:

The Owl of the Sipan Lord

Martin and Clare Montgomery worked as an archaeological team until Martin’s accidental death at a dig they were working on in Peru. Clare swore she’d never go back, but after having a dream about the dig that didn’t add up to the finds of the area, and the help of the Peruvian Pygmy Owl and a blue-eyed spirit, she did.

  2. Hi, Viv – I’ve been enjoying your blog for several months now. Then, you suddenly disappeared from my Yahoo email inbox. Did I inadvertently press the wrong button and sever the connection (understtand, I can be a real Luddite when it comes to the web)?

    I’d also like to request a review for my latest book, CHUMP CHANGE, but I’ll do that on a separate communication. On that note, what are your sumbission requirements & contact?
