Joni HubredI grew up in rural Minnesota with a passion for reading and creative writing,

In the mid-1980s, a job at a small-town weekly newspaper set the stage for my 35-year career as an award-winning reporter and editor. Just before the turn of the century, I moved to Michigan, won a few journalism awards, spent a few years in public relations, got mixed up in online news, and – during National Novel Writing Month, no less – revised a 20-year-old, abandoned manuscript that became Above the Fold

Now I’m back in Minnesota, semi-retired and living the writing life.
