Author & Journalist...
Elaine Marie Carnegie-Padgett
Traveler, Dreamer & Seeker of Knowledge-Stone Pony Author Services
I am a Texas girl, born and bred, and I write... that's what I do! I worked for many years as a paralegal and private investigator enhancing my knowledge I worked with local law enforcement, the FBI, and Texas Rangers, and those experiences are reflected in many of my stories.
I ventured into journalism and wrote for a Newspaper (part-time) then with a partner produced a Regional Visitors Guide. My historical articles were well received and published in Luxury and Lifestyle Magazines, Visitors Guides, online history venues, and by descendants in many forms. (Picked up with permission from the Newspaper)
My articles have been used in regional Texas School Systems to teach middle-grade children about the dangers of the internet. In the Texas Legislature to check the intrusive powers of POAs in the State of Texas, and on television for Discovery ID in a drama about Human Trafficking and its consequences on a human life.
I have published thirty-four short stories in anthologies by small presses. Available on Amazon and my website. I am currently querying the "Southern Crime Novel" MS. SARAH and I live in the lush East Texas Piney Woods amid my "babies" (grown children and grandchildren), and it's a good life!
