Bonnie McCune credits tenacity for the successes in her life. Since fifth grade, sheâ€™s been determined to be a writer. Thousands of rejections along with some acceptances taught her the craft, and after decades, she decided to follow her passion, fiction writing. Her recent novels are proof of her persistence.
Her interest in writing led to her career in nonprofits focusing on public and community relations and marketing. She has worked for libraries, directed a small arts organization, and managed Denver's beautification program. Her civic involvement includes grass-roots organizations, political campaigns, writers' and arts' groups, and children's literacy. Simultaneously, Bonnie has been a free lance writer with publications in local, regional, and specialty publications for news and features. A secret loveâ€”live theater, and had she been seven inches taller and 30 pounds lighter, she might have been an actress. For years, she entered recipe contests and was once a finalist in the Pillsbury Cook Off.
For reasons unknown (an unacknowledged optimism?), she believes that one person can make a difference in this world. She writes of ordinary people living their extraordinary lives, who do not need to be flamboyant or rich or aggressive, on television or splashed over the Internet, shrieking foul language or parading in flashy clothes, or even simply annoying, to be interesting.
McCune lives in Colorado with a regular assortment of relatives. Her entire family is â€śbook mad.â€ť Her books include Fallling Like a Rock (2014), Heart-Strong (2013), Irish Episode (2012), and A Saint Comes Stumbling In (2012), all of which have received rave reviews. She has collected awards for her short fiction.
