Geraldine Birch began her writing career at age 10, pecking away on an old Remington typewriter in the cozy kitchen nook of her grandmother’s house in Los Angeles. That prepared her well to serve as editor-in-chief of her junior high, high school and college newspapers.
After graduation from Los Angeles Pierce College, Birch worked as a reporter and/or editor for the Simi Valley Enterprise, The Tolucan, and the Moorpark Mirror. She also worked as a freelance writer for the Ventura County Bureau of the Los Angeles Times.
After receiving her B.A. degree in political science from California Lutheran University in 1990, she moved to northern Arizona, where she worked as a reporter, editor, and political columnist for the Sedona Red Rock News. Birch’s column, “Gerrymandering,” was awarded first place nationally by the National Newspaper Association. After a stint as the public information officer for the City of Sedona, she became executive director for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northern Arizona, retiring recently from that position to focus full-time on her first love – writing.
