Words have formed the cornerstone of Libby's life. Her father
read poetry to Libby's mother during her pregnancy...and the
love of reading and writing was born with her. She was a library
brat as a child, visiting regularly to feed her desire to read.
Libby concentrated on a Bachelors Degree in English Literature
and Classical Literature and was the first to graduate from her
university with a double major in this combination.
This writer has always been a voracious reader, too, and usually
has several books on the go at any given time. Mystery,
romantic-suspense, spy thriller or mainstream—if it's
well-written and engaging, she enjoys it.
Libby has been the creative director of a radio station, a
newspaper reporter and editor, the editor of one national and
several corporate newsletters, and the senior editorial director
of a regional women's magazine. Additionally, she has written
dozens of freelance magazine articles from an interview with an
Olympian to How-To articles.
In addition to writing, Libby is also an editor and has worked
with many authors on award-winning books. I love taking a
good book and helping an author make it the best it can be. And
if she or he wins an award with that book, I'm so proud!
Outside of her professional life, Libby has always enjoyed
having a variety of animals in her life. You'll notice most of
her central characters have pets. Main characters just
aren't complete if there isn't a cat, dog, bird or some other
pet in their lives. It helps me see what that character is like
as a person, said Libby with a grin, surrounded by her
furry writing partners.
Libby was a member of the Delta Society and developed one of the
first pet-facilitated therapy programs in her community.
