My Writing Class at Towne Center Bookstore

My Writing Class at Towne Center Bookstore

Here are members of my afternoon writing class at Towne Center Bookstore. Everyone has entries in my anthology, Written Across the Genres.

From left to right: Reme Pick, Art Tenbrink, Marilyn Slade, Blanche Wacquier, Me (Julaina), Linda Todd, Sharon McCracken, Gary Lea, Haihong Liao.

The settings of their stories, essays, and poems range from war-torn Philippines, Indonesia, China. Some plots are scary, sad, reminiscent, or humorous.

We will have a book signing at the store in late February. I will post interviews with the writers who submitted to the book including this group.

Stay tuned.

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
