R.J. is working on becoming traditionally published and taking a class with Susan Shapiro who teaches writing at NYU and Columbia University. Her current projects are writing essays to submit for publication and two book proposals (one for ridehailing experiences that changed her life and the other about her online dating experiences and what she learned). She wrote two thriller/suspense books about a wealthy dysfunctional family, which are part of a series, prior to starting writing classes in January 2016.
She is a Writers' Mic, Fairfield County Writers' Group, and Writers' Rendezvous member, as well as a member in an online secret writing group with many journalists and traditionally published authors, a filmmaking group, and a screenwriting group.
She's lived in Westport, Connecticut since 2010, has three grown children, loves dogs and enjoys singing and drawing.
