A retired data analyst has traded SQL code for figurative language and the AP Style Book.
After 34 long years under the yoke of a 9-to-5 job, Bette Griffen retired and began the next phase of her life by taking up writing. She is an avid reader, a sometimes blogger, and a writer. Interested in all forms of writing, she concentrated on writing short fiction and poetry in past semesters. Currently, her focus is journalism and novel writing.
Bette admits to being a decent photographer with an interest in photojournalism. A traveler, she once traveled to Italy’s Umbria region alone, without the benefit of speaking or understanding Italian—with just a travel guidebook and a camera.
On a more personal note, Bette has no pets but claims 11 brothers and sisters. She has more nieces and nephews that you can shake a stick at, a gaggle of great and great, great-nieces and nephews, and more pictures than frames.
Bette is a lifelong learner and plans to explore the entire spectrum of writing courses within the MCCC universe. She has earned two degrees and has no plans to strive for another one.
