About the Author
At twenty, she found herself heartbroken and bereft of a baby she gave up for adoption. She decided she needed to see the world, traveling from England, through Europe, Greece, and India, and finally climbing the Himalayas of Nepal. This gave her the chance to study different cultures, to paint and draw as well as to interact with the people—a story that she has finally put into print in Journey to Nepal.
To prepare for her trip, and while still in college, she did architectural drawings for a large Toronto firm. Upon returning from Nepal, she trained at a film studio, both on the set and in the marketing department. She moved on to advertising, PR (public relations) and trained in Internet marketing. She has been running her own marketing company, Trendsetters, since 1991, and her team conducts market research surveys in person as well as online. She has been writing copy and publishing articles for over twenty years, and keeps busy joint-venturing with consulting firms throughout the United States. Her most cherished creation is a non-profit foundation for children’s charities at: www.Hubleefoundation.org. The charity encourages new alternative energy sources as well as educational programs for children.
Ms. Hubbard currently lives in Southern California with her family, including a recently arrived granddaughter. You can visit her website at www.trendcreators.com. She welcomes constructive comments.
“The Art in each of us is the very best of what we are. Letting that come through in my own life is one of the best things I have ever done.”
