Her first short story, The Long Goodbye, was published in 2005 in the book, A Flash of Red (Spider Thief Publishing, Canada).  The book sold in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.  Her most fun writing was winning the Alaska Airlines Jingle Contest presented by the L.A. Times.  She enjoyed driving Sunset Boulevard, seeing her ads on billboards, and magazines at newsstands carrying her print copy.
