Her Other Life: 7 Authors with Gifts & Talents beyond the Page

Many authors, including me, have other gifts and talents that either pay for our love for writing or represent other forms of expression.  Often the myth is that published authors are wealthy and write all day and night. Not true, and these 7 authors are just an example of women who have successful careers as writers and in other areas.

Tyora Moody has a day job as the digital manager for a TV station and has for many years supported authors as a book marketer, graphic designer and web developer.

Best-selling author Connie Briscoe is also an accomplished jewelry designer. Visit her Etsy shop, Connie Briscoe Designs, to see some of her designs and wares.

Pat G’Orge-Walker is an Essence best-selling author with countless awards on her shelves for the books she’s written over the years. Pat is also a notable Christian comedienne who brings her first and most beloved character, Sister Betty to life in performances all over the country.

Stacy Hawkins Adams is a journalist turned novelist who works as a marketing professional for an independent school in her area. She is also a speaker.

Monica “Moe” Anderson is an oral surgeon and administrator who also enjoys a career as an author, humorist, and world-renowned speaker.

Annie Clara Brown is a clinical social worker.

Mitzi Miller is the editor-in-chief of Ebony magazine but she has authored books. One of those books, The Vow, is a Lifetime movie.

This is just a sample of authors with more than one job and interest. What do you do for a living? Tell me in the comment section. Also, share how you manage a busy schedule working full-time and writing. Thank you.
