Annette is the former senior editor of WOW! WomenOnWriting.com, an online magazine written by, for, and about women in the publishing industry. During her editorship, WOW was selected by Writer’s Digest for their list of “101 Best Websites for Writers” for two consecutive years. She writes and edits for WOW! on a freelance basis when her schedule permits.
Annette speaks at national writer’s conferences and organizations about online promotion, how to get an agent, DIY publishing, and memoir writing. She also teaches online workshops, and an in-person memoir program: Write From Your Soul.
Annette began her writing career hawking her feature film spec scripts in Hollywood, nearly killed her muse by working as a technical copywriter for the computer industry, and found her way to narrative writing, which felt like dancing naked in a field of flowers compared to her previous writing adventures.
On the personal side, Annette was a single mom for 15 years—sole support and care of her son. After she was empty-nested by her commercial photographer son, she decided to regularly monitor his life by stalking him on FB & IG. Now, she plays Alpha Mom to the sweetest, goofiest Staffordshire Terrier on the planet. You can find her living her best life on the beach volleyball courts or street skating backward on quads through downtown Huntington Beach.
Annette is currently indulging her Gemini twins by juggling work on a new memoir, a pilot based on her last memoir, and a midlife-divorce survival guide—all while being grateful that life’s whatthefuckery is continually providing story fodder.
