Illinois ConnectionI moved to Illinois as a new bride in 1952, lived in Chicago 1952-55, in Arlington Heights 1955-62, and in Palatine 1962-present. I have 8 books still in print, 7 of which are young adult career opportunities, and one, which I co-authored (with Ron Johnson) is a book about film appreciation. I have two master's degrees from Roosevelt University, Chicago:(the MBA and the Masters in Training & Development with e-learning concentration. I currently teach (2010)composition courses at Harper College,Palatine IL, and at Roosevelt University, Schaumburg campus, and am adjunct faculty at both schools. From 1977-85, I was an elected Trustee at Harper College, Palatine, an Illinois community college, and served as board secretary for several of those years. I have a bylined chapter being published in late 2010 in an instructional manual that accompanies The Bedford Guide, (9th ed) a composition textbook for college writers.
Biographical and Professional InformationI have been a published freelance writer since 1947, and still am (2010).
