I am a former academic librarian and teacher and reside in New Jersey, USA. My formal education includes two masters degrees, and French study at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. I have published articles related to the library field and have spoken at national, international and local library conferences. I also write under my legal name Zana Etter, and have published a suspense thriller set in South America, “Dark Orchids” in print and E-book. I am currently having my third upmarket fiction “A Woman’s Promise” edited. I hope you enjoy Dances, a creative non-fiction collection of short essays.
