Ghostwriter, biographer, published author, and comprehensive manuscript critic and editor. Formerly: Executive Secretary to U.S. Senator, Playboy Club Bunny Mother, Court Reporter, Newspaper Columnist for weekly and daily newspapers (Key West, Florida, Friday Harbor, WA, Panama City, Panama), International Radio Show Host, Domestic violence survivor and advocate, and always an entrepreneur.
I have spent the last 20 years using interviewing and writing skills in several industries.
I am now focused on writing transformative tales and collaborating on stories for treatments as documentaries and story narratives based on true experiences.
My background as a USCG licensed professional sailor began my life-long love of the ocean and traveling, and led to a career as an exclusive columnist covering "all things related to boating and water activities" for newspapers on both the East and West Coasts of the USA and internationally.
I currently enjoy a lifestyle envied by many; living with my husband on an island in the Pacific where we operate an adventure water tour business.
My interests encompass more than one industry as demonstrated by my commitment to continue to contribute to helping others learn about retirement and health options beyond the borders of the U.S.
As the host of the "Know Before You Go" radio program, broadcasting weekly on Overseas Radio Network, I produced marketable audio content. I have been a guest speaker at Medical Tourism conventions in several countries, and a contributor to the book “65 Things To Do When You Retire” Travel by Sellers Publishing Inc. and a contributing reviewer of “Saving Private Healthcare” by Michael Kalthoff.
My first novel written under the penname of Edie Little, "How Wonder Woman Became a Smuggler" was published in 2021 on Amazon, Draft2Digital and Google Play. The Audiobook version is coming soon.
“Wonder Woman? Smuggler? Hmm... I downloaded the book and was quickly taken on an epic adventure of abuse, rebellion, coming of age, mobsters, Las Vegas, and Playboy bunnies, culminating in the Florida Keys, smuggling... well, you’ll have to read the book to find out. Lady Pirate, indeed! This easy and interesting read is much more than some wannabe hippies thumbing their noses at authority. It’s a story of survival. Of playing the hand you’re dealt- of living life to its fullest. Arrrrgh, matey!” - Bob Sluys
