Welcome

088eb14324190ad8956eff.L._V146807737_SX200_Thanks for stopping by my website. I write contemporary fiction, romance, and nonfiction. In everything I do, I seek a challenge.

I am a storyteller. Any time I use language, either in speaking or writing, I tell a story. I can’t help it. Someone once asked me if I could ever turn it off. I responded, “Why would I ever want to do that?”

I started my career as a high school English teacher, holding the dreaded red pen over thousands of essays for seventeen years. When I lost the passion for teaching others how to write, I knew it was finally time to put the pen to paper and do what writers do. So I wrote. And I still write. I’ve been calling myself a writer since 1998. Since that time, I’ve written in a variety of genres and on a multitude of topics. It’s been the most delightful journey of my life. As the world of writing and publishing continues to change and evolve at ever increasing speeds, I find myself confused, intrigued, and confused more every day. The more I learn, the less I know.

After gigs as a reporter, columnist, editor, publisher, and public relations director, I’m now a full-time writer. I write my blog, and I always have a novel in some part of the publishing process. I’m also putting myself through an independent study program on how to use social media effectively as an Indie Author. I published three novels and one work of nonfiction traditionally before deciding to take control of my books.

I was born and raised in Michigan. Then Florida beckoned, and I moved there in 1980 and raised my daughter on twenty acres in rural northern Florida with my first husband. After my divorce, and while working for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as a public relations director, I reconnected with a lost love from my teenage years in Michigan. He lived in Pittsburgh, and when we married, I left Florida for the Steel City. All the places I’ve lived thus far share a part of my heart. But the biggest part of my heart goes to my daughter Anna and my new husband, Robert.

I write about life and love; I write about wildlife; I write about the environment; I write about climate change; I write about my love of outdoor activities, from gardening to kayaking.

Thank you for stopping by. Let’s stay in touch.

  2. Hi again
    Do you read poetry? For environmentally aware poetry (ecopoetry) have a look at Earth Shattering, published by Bloodaxe Books here in the UK. I’ve got a short review on my blog( from ‘goodreads’.)

  4. Hello P. C. Zick, it is nice to ‘meet’ you. I love your zest for outdoor life. You left a comment on my contemporary romance novel – Kiss My Lips (Holiday Series #2) – post featured on Staci Triolo’s blog late last year. Thank you.

    I live in London and I write contemporary romance. But I have my first historical romance – Royal Cowries – due out on Mar 31st 2015. it would be great to stay in touch.
    Best wishes,
    Stella

    • Wanda – Thank you so much for leaving the comment. It keeps me going. I’m finishing up a novella for a sports-themed romantic box set right now. I hope to write Behind the Curtain this summer. It would be wonderful if you could leave a short review on the site where you purchased the books. Reviews are very helpful to us Indie Authors. Thanks again. You’ve started my week on a high note:)

    • Debbie, how wonderful to meet you, too. I certainly hope you enjoy my books. I’ve ordered them all and should have them at Body Buzz either next Friday or Monday, July 27. Sometimes they are slow to get them sent! I shouldn’t have packed all of them away in storage!
      See you at Body Buzz soon. Pat
