Irene Woodbury

Biography

Irene Woodbury is a freelance writer based in Denver. Las Vegas was a favorite destination for travel stories, but she always felt the city would be the perfect setting for a novel. Four-and-a-half years and many visits later, A Slot Machine Ate My Midlife Crisis was finished.

The author has lived in a couple of the cities in her book, including Los Angeles, where she worked at the Los Angeles Times, IBM and Time Magazine, and Houston, where she graduated from the University of Houston in 1993. She also got married in Houston. Her husband, Richard, a retired Time Magazine correspondent, edited her novel.

Her travel stories have appeared in many newspapers, including the Washington Post, London Daily Telegraph, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Toronto Star, and Nevada and The Affluent Traveler magazines. Of course, one of these days she just might take a trip that doesn’t include any kind of writing, but don’t hold your breath.
