She’ll give you the inside scoop about automated resume processing, job board posting, handling awkward questions, and dealing with phone interviews.
Twenty years of animal rescue work make Penny something of a pet expert too. A passion for helping animals and educating people about their care works well with her writing talent. She was honored to be a guest speaker for Animal Talk Naturally at the Virtual Dog Expo and thoroughly enjoyed an interview with DogCastRadio, located in the UK. Penny is also President of Catnip Casa Cat Refuge and Love & Cuddles Pet Respite Care in Austin, Texas.
Two anthologies published by Adams Media also contain her stories. Like A Rock appears in Cup of Comfort for Mothers & Sons and Honey, appears in The Healing Touch of Horses.
Her second passion is photography. Poetry and photography provide inspiration to grow and explore new ideas. Although she doesn’t consider herself a skilled poet, Penny won first place for Adult Rhyming Poetry in the Prairie Hill Writing Contest.
Penny and her husband live in Austin, Texas. She shares her assignments with a staff of office assistants that includes several four-legged editorial consultants. In her leisure time, she cultivates antique roses and seeks new additions to the edible landscape around her home.
