ABOUT Lee Anne Wonnacott
My name is Lee Anne.
I grew up enamored with the struggle and adventure of men and women living in the 1800 U.S. At thirteen, it felt as if I had suddenly awoken to hear that space was the final frontier. Eventually, I came to realize that is was the human imagination that encased the new frontier.
I know it was the stories of others who ignited my novelist imagination. Neighbors recited trials and tribulations on trains. Elderly relatives brought forth memories from diaries and letters. A lonely, complete stranger in the Zurich train station revisited deep scars.
It was the prodding, nitpicking, and pushing from one determined high school English teacher who showed me where to jump into storytelling. My secret to crafting a moving story is that if the story is not working, just kill off a character in a horribly painful death. My passion is authoring and promoting my western adventure novels. I am the author of fiction titles Newton Cutter, Iron and Rawhide, Rage at Rancho del Oro, and Nick Stolter.
The Business Side of Life
When not writing during the week, I work as a client services specialist for a senior in-home care company. During the course of my professional business career I have had to get up from being knocked down more times than I care to discuss. I learned how to better stay up each time. It is that dogged determination that gives me the steely strength to pass on this business acumen.
An expert author on E-Zine Articles, I am called upon for sales scripts, guest blogging, and to contribute to others endeavors. I am particularly fond of showing disadvantaged youth how to get their foot up onto that first rung on the business ladder.
I know that to be successful in a new business, someone must simply ask “What are you struggling with? How can I help?” The successful person will bring answers and knowledge to bear without any expectation of return. When an answer is provided that stops the pain, stops the confusion and brings relief, value is created. Growing consistent value and passing it on those expectant users brings business success.
I cook chili, knit, hunt for sea glass, and howl with the neighborhood dogs in Oceanside, California.
