Gale Martin is an award-winning writer of contemporary fiction who finally plied her childhood penchant for telling tall tales into a legitimate literary pursuit during midlife. She began writing her first novel at age eleven, finishing it a mere three decades later.
She'd commit a misdemeanor to score some Babybel cheese and goes weak-kneed for hummingbirds. She is a wife and mother of one and a communications director by profession who owes her signature joie de vivre to regular Curves workouts.
She blogs about opera--the art form, not the platform, and is an opera reviewer for Bachtrack, an online site featuring classical performance worldwide. She can name any aria in three notes. Okay, five notes, perfectly sung.
Her first novel, DON JUAN IN HANKEY, PA, is a humorous homage to 'Don Giovanni,' Mozart’s famous tragicomic opera about the last two days of Don Juan’s life. It was named a Finalist in the 2012 National Indie Excellence Awards for New Fiction.
