Wade” appears in the anthology Get Out of My Crotch! published by Cherry Bomb Press.

She has participated in story slams for Woodstock Writers Festival, StorySlams.com and for TMI Project events. Following her early career as a continuity writer and radio personality, for many years she freelanced as a travel writer for travel industry magazines. Unfortunately she doesn’t like to leave home and finds travel uncomfortable and exhausting. For the last twenty-six years story telling has influenced her work as a performer with Community Playback Theatre, an improvisational acting company in the Hudson Valley. Her memoir Basking In The Glow Of Her Golden Years is almost completed.
