How do you go from covering corporate takeovers to writing comic romance and editing just about everything? Easy, says veteran journalist Alison Cunliffe. You just keep on doing what you love.
Alison exercised that passion for words while writing and editing at Canadaâ€™s biggest newspaper for a few decades, with some side trips for short crime stories in the Cold Blood anthologies. These days a romantic comedy is a-borning when sheâ€™s not writing about personal finance and editing some of that everything weâ€™ve spoken of.
Her editing has included two books on the writing life by Rita-winning author Barbara Samuel; romantic and paranormal comedies from now-indie novelist Kathy Carmichael; non-fiction and fiction from Paul Lima, indie author, corporate writer and teacher of freelancing; and a Mossy Creek anthology from BelleBooks. Her latest project was Liz Jansenâ€™s Women, Motorcycles and the Road to Empowerment.
