After Bennington College, I worked at McCall's Magazine and then went to Ogilvy&Mather, New York during the "Mad Men " era. David Ogilvy and his colleagues treated me wonderfully, promoted me several times and then sent me west to become head of their agency in Los Angeles. I managed an agency of 200 great people. I was invited to be on the 1984 Olympic Committee and the boards of a law school and a major charity. I had a terrific and unusually successful time in advertising. A move to Reno brought me to the attention of the University of Nevada where I was invited to join the faculty as a full professor in Journalism. I taught marketing communications and media ethics until 2009. I learned about campus politics and tensions when I served as Chair of the Faculty Senate. That experience sent me back to my first love:writing fiction. So, after 26 years of college teaching, I retired to write academic mysteries about campus violence. Published in 2014 by Henery Press, "The Red Queen's Run," is the first in a trilogy. The story opens with the brutal death of the dean of journalism.
