Shoreham, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2009
Patti Ann Bengen has been recognized by Cambridge's Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence as an author and writer, and through work at her company, Bookworm Publishing, LLC, where she is responsible for reviewing manuscripts, working with authors in both the pre and post-publishing phases, offering reviews to authors, and writing and marketing her own books.
As a writer of romantic thrillers, this talented author, has the uncanny ability of grabbing the reader on page one, and is relentless in maintaining the suspense until the ink runs out on the final page. She has been writing for the past fifteen years, and created BWP in 2005. The titles of her recent releases include, "New Beginnings," and "The Devil's Dance," both published by Arbor Books.
Patti Ann Bengen describes the publishing business as, Âan industry that is presently in a state of metamorphosis, where there are many independent publishers and authors publishing almost a half-a-million books a year, and there are not enough agents to handle, or read, the amount of manuscripts that they are given.Â She is currently looking for an agent to expose her books for foreign rights. Her current projects involve a new romantic thriller involving a rescue mission in Afghanistan, a series of fun short stories for children with moralistic messages: something she feels children are not getting enough of, and a series of self-help, and empowerment books. This delightful author is an authority on writing, and is available to speak.
There is more to this lady than meets the eye, bringing an extensive and interesting background that adds to the Âdown-to-earthÂ nature of her writing. The author served as a medical administrator and patient care coordinator specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and providing these services to hospital in-patients, as well as on an outpatient basis, in the community. She was involved with several teams, clinics and clubs, inclusive of cardiac, stroke, cleft palate, arthritis, and amputee, as well as training all support staff. While in this position, the administrator was honored with the Community Recognition Award by radio station WICC for her community service in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and considers this to be a rewarding aspect of her career. ÂI have learned a lot from my patients, over the years, and I feel these experiences have helped to develop me into the person that I am today.Â As she moved on in her career, she served as V.P. of Administration in her family-owned and operated soft drink business, Seven-Up Brooklyn Bottling Company, Inc., where she specialized in time management. She has had her own businesses along the way including a typing service and a retail music store.
At present, she spends time teaching a three-fold cardio dance program entitled ÂNia,Â and has this to say about the program that she is certified to teach, (and has been teaching for the past ten years), ÂThere is nothing else like it out there. This is a cardio program that blends the dances, martial and healing arts to provides a total workout at YOUR level, inclusive of flexibility and strengthening training, and stressing the mind-body connection. The program grows with your fitness level.Â She is certified ZUMBA instructor. Furthermore, this dynamic lady is a certified level II Reiki practitioner, a registered medical assistant, a certified wedding and special events planner, and specializes in high Victorian teas. This author is a member of several organizations including Romance Writers of America, San Diego Writers and Editors Guild, The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. She sponsors four women around the globe in war-laden countries through Women for Women International, and The Shade Tree Women's Shelter in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a writer, a teacher of the arts and sponsor, she is devoted to women empowerment, and bringing the horrendous and ongoing issue of people abuse out into the open. She has appeared on Fox 5 in Las Vegas, local cablevision on Long Island, and on several radio talk shows across the country, and is available to speak with the media.
