Susan de la Vergne
I wrote my first short story when I was eight, a tale of cowboys and rustlers in the old west, of horse stealing and shoot-outs by the corral. I made copies and gave them to our neighbors who (very kindly) read it. My career as a self-publishing writer had begun.
Then I went on to do what writers do--read, write, and major in English in college, which led me to a long career in… information technology. But that's another story. Today, I'm a writer and an editor. I especially like to write about the workplace because there's so little fiction about work, and yet so much happens at work besides work!
Although I hover over a keyboard a lot, I also teach ESL, meditation, and modern Buddhism. I live in Los Angeles, which is my home town. I've always been grateful to this city because it's a place where people dream big, and when you're surrounded by dreams, you're more likely to have some of your own.
