Her presentation today is "Fur, Feathers and Scales--Using animals in your writing and making it work." -- Part of her presentation will include a hands-on workshop/exercise with tips on how to make animal characters lovable and believable. Let's get out our writing tools, as we welcome back long-time member, Georgiana Hall.
Georgiana Hall (pen name G.G. Hall) is the author of two books written about the life of a pet rabbit. “Hershey- A Tale of a Curious House Rabbit” was released in 2010 and circulated the globe in both paperback and electronic forms. A sequel, “Trouble in the Attic” was released in December 2015. Books in progress include two middle grade novels, “The Silver Loon,” and “Penny’s Worth.”
Georgiana has a wealth of experience working with animals. She has had a wide assortment of pets--everything from a gecko to a toucan to a horse and she worked with an exotics vet for 10 years. For the past 13 years, she has volunteered as a licensed educator with the House Rabbit Society, an international rescue organization devoted to helping injured and abandoned pet rabbits and educating the public about their care and well-being as pets.
Currently, she is an adjunct physics and astronomy professor with the Colorado Community College Online Consortium. She has taught physics and astronomy at Miami-Dade College, FIU, the University of Miami, and Broward College. She holds a B.S in physics from the University of Mary Washington, an M.S. in physics from Georgetown University, and an M.S. in Engineering Management from FIU.
Georgiana moved to Miami 26 years ago from Virginia, where she was born and raised. She and her husband, a physics professor at FIU, plan to move to Colorado next year. They currently share their home with 5 rescued rabbits, 2 parrots, a mousebird and a green aracari.
