“The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.” – Rudyard Kipling
Bonnie McCune credits her tenacity for any successes in her life. She now has two novels, including the most recent Falling Like a Rock, and two novellas to her credit as proof. Since fifth grade, she has been determined to be a writer. Her interest in writing led to her career in nonprofits doing public and community relations and marketing. She’s worked for libraries, directed a small arts organization and managed Denver’s beautification program.
Simultaneously, she’s been a free lance writer with publications in local, regional, and specialty publications for news and features. Her main interest now is fiction writing, and her pieces have won several awards.
Her civic involvement includes grass-roots organizations, political campaigns, writers’ and arts’ groups, and children’s literacy. For years, she entered recipe contests and was a finalist once to the Pillsbury Cook Off. A special love is live theater. Had she been nine inches taller and thirty pounds lighter, she might have been an actress.
For reasons unknown (an unacknowledged optimism?), she believes that one person can make a difference in this world. McCune lives in Denver, Colorado, where she’s been married to the same man forever, has two children and three grandchildren. The entire family is book-mad. She is working on a humorous novel about aging.
