LS Wagen

Biography

LS Wagen began her writing career as a child placing in two local juvenile essay contests. As a recent Arizona State University graduate, LS Wagen like many college graduates found herself unemployed. With her knowledge gained from her coursework on Human Resource Management and after interviewing many recruiters, she found herself self-employed working in the resume writing business.

Recently she has obtained the designation of CPRW, Certified Professional Resume Writer, from The Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches. She has also expanded her resume, and business writing to include short stories, essays, and even a novel. "Pauline's Perils of Perplexity" LS Wagen's novel for the New Adult, and Young Adult crowd (ages 16 through 21) chronicles the ups and downs of job hunting of one whimsical twenty-something character, Pauline Schmidt, in a parody of "The Perils of Pauline."

What was needed in her wide range of repertoire however was a professional how-to-book on how-to easily write a resume, and thus "Super Man's Resume: A Beginner's Guide to Resume Writing, and Beyond" was born.

You can find the paperback copy of the books listed here on www.amazon.com or at your local bookstore.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I remember the first story that I wrote. It was in fourth grade, and I was given a classroom assignment to write a fictional story. I wrote a fictional story in the first person about being lost in the woods, and being chased by a bear. Since this was new to me, I was scared to death to write anything, because I was a perfectionist. I was scared to learn the alphabet also when I was in first grade. It wasn't a coincidence that I chose a story that had fright as the theme.
What is your writing process?
My writing process is very intuitive. I write when I have something to say. Sometimes I dream a whole short story word for word in its entirety. Of course, if I am working writing business copy, or a resume, I write when I have a client. There's a deadline and you can't wait for inspiration to strike.

My young readers, Young Adult, and New Adult readers (16+ teens and college age) are so afraid of failure that it breeds inaction and the inability to follow ones dreams, and goals. In fact, that's the moral and the perplexity of Pauline who was judged by her cover, but she wasn't afraid to persevere.
