Carmen Ruggero’s love of writing began when she was a child, but it did not become a reality till later in life.
Carmen was first, a correspondent for The Herald Tribune in Anderson Indiana, covering special assignments. On her return to Los Angeles, newspaper work incorporated her photographic skills. By 1990, she worked exclusively as a news photographer and writing became a sideline.
Carmen was the recipient of the Canadian Prix Poésie Laissez-faire Award in February of 2004. Her poetry work will be featured in The New Pleiades Anthology of Poetry to be released in the summer of 2005.
Her short story: “Christmas at Tinsel Town,” took first place in the list of best published of 2001 in Short Story Bytes. She was short-listed by Toowrite.com for her short story: “Within the Eye of the Storm,” and took first place in the Veronica Tegler short story competition for her story: “Eighty-Six Eggs.”
Carmen’s website is Yarnspinner.
