Words, words, words…

Words and writing have been important in my life for nearly as long as I can remember. I was an early reader and buried myself in books as much as I could as a child. I still do.

For the past two decades or so, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to earn my living as a freelance writer, creating articles on a wide range of subjects for national and regional magazines and for the publications of not-for-profit organizations.

I’ve written about the arts and artists;endangered species; the history of Henry Flagler; palms and fruit trees; teddy bear makers; miniature artisans; and women with AIDS in Southwest Florida.

I’ve had the opportunity to interview and write about such celebrities as Steve Allen and Jayne Meadows; Robert Ludlum and Robin Cook; Isaac Hayes; and Patti Lupone.

I continue to write for magazines and believe I have the best "job" in the world: I get to meet the most interesting people; I get to write about them; and someone actually pays me for it!

I have also dabbled in writing short stories. "Retreat" was published in Expressions magazine, and "A Potentiality of Roaches" was published in Ransom: The Anthology (under my pen name, Anna Bujko).

Writing will always be a part of my life, and as I come up with interesting new projects I’ll tell you about them here. So keep checking back. You never know what I’ll be working on next!
