Aggie Villanueva just did this amazing interview with me and I was blown away how quickly this smart lady put her head around what I do. She picked up on my soft spot for women and that I want as many of them to succeed in their careers as I can get my hands on. She took a look at my speaker and author website and somehow managed to combine the both, which I even haven’t been able to do, quite brilliantly. For those who are peeking and are interested in the book “Women Who Want It All and Get It, Too,” it is being shopped with publishers right now by my literary agent. There is a fabulous want-it-all list available as a free download to help you get started. That list was designed by the amazing illustrator Elaine Biss. In order to get what you want you first need to know what “it” is. I will keep the updates on my other blog, listed to the right. If you are a woman or know one who could benefit from it, please check it out.
Back to Aggie. Writing since the late 70′, Aggie Villanueva’s first novel, Chase the Wind, Thomas Nelson 1983, was published before she was 30 and her second, Rightfully Mine, from Thomas Nelson in 1986.
Villanueva freelanced throughout the 80s writing three craft columns and three software review columns, both for national magazines. She was featured on the cover of The Christian Writer Magazine October 1983.
After teaching at writer’s conferences throughout the Midwest, she founded/directed the 3-day Mid-America Fellowship of Christian Writers conferences for four years until 1990.
Photographic art entered by 2006, and within two years Villanueva was dubbed the Grandma Moses of the American Southwest by her artistic peers, and is represented in several online and walk-in art galleries across the nation.
Critically acclaimed in the June 19, 2008 issue of the Rio Grande Sun:
…Villanueva is one of those rare individuals who uses new technology…to take a digital image to a new and exciting level….With some photographers this digitizing and manipulation are evident and stumbling…not so with Villanueva’s work, which is sophisticated and well thought out….She has a knack for transferring her impression of a scene to the viewer that is remarkable and almost magical.
As Aggie states; The Fairy Trail is real, folks. Welcome To My Path.”
