*Swing Shift Call Center Gal, Full-time Mommy and Graveyard Shift Writer* I've worked in a call center for over a decade. *SOBS* And I still do. I'm also a first time author of chick lit novel Confessions of a Call Center Gal. After I graduated with my journalism degree, I served as Copy Editor at Desktop Journal. Then I went on to do technical writing for a software company in Cali. When I wanted to settle down and start a family, I started working at a call center. The hours at the call center are flexible and it allows me to be a stay at home mom, and still bring in some bacon (albeit very, very lean bacon). My two little girls and three pooches still have their mommy around most of the time, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters to me.
I am a HUGE dog lover. I was the kid who went around my neighborhood feeding scraps to stray dogs. And now I'm the big kid who is the owner of three pooches What does 3 pooches entail? 3x the love and 3x the doggie doo doo to pick up. I still get all tearful every time I watch Animal Cops, and I'm a big champion of the Moon Bear Rescue group, headed by the Animals Asia foundation.
I'm a voracious reader and my one guilty passion is chick lit. Fav authors include Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes, Emily Giffin, Helen Fielding, (among many others) and the one who started it all - Jane Austen.
