Bonnie McCune has been writing since age ten, when she submitted a poem about rain rushing down the gutter to the Saturday Evening Post (it was immediately rejected). This interest initiated a passion for writing of all types. Her mania is fiction, and her pieces have won several awards. Never Retreat is her third novel and her fifth book of fiction.
However, like almost everyone, once she reached adulthood, she had to make a living. Her interest in the written word facilitated 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 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 Bake Off. A special love is live theater. Had she been nine inches taller and thirty pounds lighter, she might have been an actress
She has a husband, two adult children, and three grandchildren, all of whom are book-mad. For reasons unknown (an unacknowledged optimism?), she believes one person can make a difference in this world.
