Hi and Welcome!
In 2006 I started this blog as a place to post my published magazine articles at first in the hopes of gaining more writing assignments. At the time, I was also teaching English at a local community college. Although I loved the byline, I was too busy teaching, and the hours required to research and write the articles were extensive. So I focused on teaching and my creative writing.
In 2011, I self-published my novel, Stella Silvers and the Secret, via my publishing company, Sea Glass Ink. At that point, I took a Dreamweaver online course, and created a website, Ginaladinsky.com for my book and other writings. Now, in 2017, I hope to combine all of writing to my WordPress blog. This will allow me to continue to write both short stories and non-fiction pieces that I can easily publish.
I live in a suburb of Los Angeles minutes from the beach and with easy access to hiking trails in Topanga State Park. I love the outdoors and hike and surf often. I retired from my full-time teaching position at a Los Angeles area community college in 2016. I have taught thousands of students how to write a college essay, and I am proud of that. But I am so glad to not have the stack of papers that constantly haunted my daily living.
I hope you enjoy my writing. I look forward to receiving comments and feedback.
