SHORTS AND burgeon with Audio CD
Maureen Bloesch is what I'd call an oxymoron. She's analytical, methodical, organized and an artist.
Bloesch been an Efficiency Expert and Crisis worker, she was an Art Director for a large textile company that printed and sold 81 of her designs. An English Teachers assistant for foreign-born students and an Arts and Crafts instructor for seniors and licensed Cosmetologist and traveling beautician for paraplegics and homebound in her area.
Bloesch has one daughter and three sons and several grandchildren that are an important part of her creative life.
Bloesch says her poetry made friends and family laugh and cry -- sometimes at the same time. "Put them in a book," they told her, but going to a publisher who offered so little of what Maureen wanted for a lot of money made her more determined to publish her books herself, with some help (Press Release from PRWeb). Maureen Bloesch did the writing, designing, printing, binding and distribution of her books on her own.
Maureen Bloeschs' book signing for 'SHORTS and burgeon' is February 5, 2006 at BORDERS, 1820 South road, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590, 845-297-3700
Bloesch states that she will donate 10% of all book sales to the Salvation Army.

Bloesch, being born in the Bronx, did not develop her love of photography till she and her husband moved to a log home in upstate New York. Twenty-two years later, her husband was called to active duty and sent overseas, and being surrounded by a state forest, a beautiful garden and being alone with their animals, was a natural turn of events that made her pick up a camera. Being an artisan helped her to create exciting close-ups of flora and fauna that started Bloesch writing to emphasize her photography. This was just another step in the evolution of Maureen Bloeschs' artistic life, and now, with her husband safely home and retired from the military, Maureen has a calm in which to expand on her artistic talents.
In 1992, Maureen Bloesch won the Iliad Literary Award for Recognition of Literary Excellence from The National Authors Registry. Maureen won the Editors Choice Award for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry, in 1993,
by The National Library of Poetry.
In 1993, Wonder Digital Press published three of Maureen Bloeschs' short stories, for Apple computer. The Amherst Society published Maureen’s poetry in, the American Poetry Annual, in 1994. In 1995, The Presidents' Award for Literary Excellence for, "The Article." Bloesch won the Editors Choice Award in 2005 for 'Spring'.
Maureen has another book that came out on December 17, 2005, that is filled with delightful Poetry (some with a twist) and several photographs called, "Words to take your breath away." You can order a signed copy by email and putting 'books' in the subject line.
