FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New York, N.Y. January 2, 2017 SECRET DESIRES Margo Simmons is ecstatic when she inherits her uncle’s Manhattan apartment and a handsome sum of money. To her chagrin, there are strings attached. She must be gainfully employed in a job for a year. Everything in Margo’s life has complications. When she meets the man of her dreams, she anguishes over how to fulfill her secret desires for a loving relationship because he is still emotionally tied to his deceased wife and afraid to open his heart again.

A book for parents, children, and educators that shows how to learn in different ways.

After obtaining Associate and Bachelor’s degrees (Bus. Admin.), I returned to the corporate world to fill my Marketing portfolio. The writing bug bit: I obtained my Master of Science degree in Financial, Technical, and Medical writing at Polytechnic University - NYU and paid my journalism dues in all three before obtaining the role that crowned my corporate career: Manager of Communications for a multibillion dollar transportation and global commerce conglomerate. I served the corporate world as a marketing and communications specialist. In addition to being a published, award-winning photographer (photo in New York Historical Society’s archival collection), I have been a media presentation trainer, literacy consultant to grade schools, ESL college adjunct, and freelance corporate writer/​trainer in the nuances of global entrepreneurship. I have conducted creative writing and photojournalism workshops in the States and South Africa, Argentina, Vietnam, and Eastern Europe. I decided to return to graduate school for my second Masters in Academic/​Business ESL for Adults, completed in May 2009. I spent the summer of 2008-2009 teaching conversational English to high school students from Spain, Russia, Italy, and Poland. Currently, I’m doing adjunct work in ESL at several colleges, published more articles on “getting it write” and have completed my third Masters in Special Education/​Elementary Education (grades 1-6). My children's self-help book will soon be available online. I'm also working on some intriguing suspense novels. I’ve also authored and published many articles on aspects of business communication and wrote a writing handbook that was used by over 1,000 professionals during my tenure as Manager of Communications for the global concern. I can also be found online with an award-winning piece for teens and a short mystery story. My corporate annual report won an award from the Society for Technical Communication. My chapter, "How to Communicate in a Global Society" was published in the International Television Association's Handbook.

I am proud to report that my short murder mystery story is still read online with good reviews ("Death Scents").
