• After 14 years as a radio journalist, I purchased my first computer in 1984 and began a fulltime freelance nonfiction writing career.
• I wrote more than 400 business magazine articles, and wrote humor columns for several magazines and served as managing editor of the Florida Business Journal newspaper.
• After Bantam-Lynx in New York published my first six Veronica Slate mystery novels, I began teaching novel writing on the Online Campus.
• In fifteen years, through dedicated chat rooms, regular email and two weekly virtual classrooms, I taught 4,125 students from all over the USA how to write a first novel. I actually read and edited more than 3,000 first chapters for my students.
Check out two of my published online graduates by going to Amazon and searching on:
• Knights of the Shield by Jeff Messick and
• Destined to Choose or Strength to Stand by Sheyna Galyan.

A lovely woman from California who was in my 1997 online writing class asked me questions by email almost every day for a year.
I ended up falling in love with her and moving from Florida to Los Angeles and marrying her!
We celebrated our 18th anniversary on December 13th, 2016, my darling, Lori Dagmar Huffman Crews and me. (She is also the Senior Editor at Petersen Press.)
