Rose A. Valenta

Talented

I attend the bi-annual Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop at the University of Dayton, am a member of the Robert Benchley Society, and the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

Erma was the greatest American humorist of our generation, and an inspiration to me.

My writing experience is extensive. I wrote for a subsidiary of McGraw-Hill for 12 years, as a technical staff writer and freelanced for other industry publications. I also took creative writing courses at Delaware Technical College. Many of my articles are syndicated at Associated Content and have appeared in USA TODAY, Newsday, The Courier Post, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I am currently working on a humor book, just got an agent, and am not at liberty to elaborate on any details just yet. However, Trend Hunter will be the first to know.
