Alice Wootson's
Romantic Interlude


About Alice Wootson

Like my deceased sister, author Marilyn Tyner, I was born in Rankin, PA, a small town outside of Pittsburgh.

I came to the Philadelphia area to attend Cheyney University. After I graduated, I began teaching, first in Chester, PA and then in Philadelphia.

I have been an avid reader since I learned to read. I read a variety of genres, but most of what I read is romance. (I like happy endings).

I began writing poetry when I was in grade school and I still do. In fact, an agent told me that my work was too poetic to sell commercially. (Two days later I received a call from Karen Thomas at Arabesque asking if my manuscript was still available because she liked it).

The manuscript was SNOWBOUND WITH LOVE, and when I hear from readers, they tell me how much they like the fact that it was so poetic.

I didn't do much writing while our children were young, but I did write an occasional short story. After they were grown and computers became readily available, I began writing in earnest. Now, I can't stop; I have all of these people in my head poking me and nagging me to write their stories.

I retired from teaching and now I write full time.

I'm active in the Mad Poet's Organization and a board member of the Philadelphia Writer's Conference.
