Petula's Bio

It’s pretty funny to me how I can sit down and write about any random subject without too much thought. That is, at least when my muse is flowing. But tell me I have to write about myself and suddenly I turn into an extremely stiff and boring writer especially if I think it has to be business like.

Think I’m being too hard on myself? Well, I’ll prove it to you. This is how this bio started originally:
Petula Renee Wright officially began her career in 1993 as a reporter at a Gannett newspaper, the Observer-Dispatch, in Utica, New York. She spent the next couple of years honing her journalistic skills and upon moving to Atlanta in 1995, she began working as an assistant editor for Positive Publications.
It’s about me and I’m bored so I can’t expect you to be interested. I’m going to attempt to get through this with a little creativity and zero boredom. Wish me luck and let me know what you think.

Here are the facts:
  • I have a bachelor’s degree in journalism.
  • I have been a writer and editor for about 14 years.
  • I write business profiles, health and fitness articles, book and product reviews, feature articles and web content.
  • My editing experience includes magazines, fiction and non-fiction manuscripts as well as creative projects like comic books and, of course, blogging.
  • I’ve written for Upscale, Atlanta Woman, New You and Atlanta Good Life magazines as well as several other local and national publications.
If you’re interesting in more information regarding my background, please feel free to contact me at I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have. You can also find additional information by clicking the “need a writer?” tab at the top of each page and there are a few “writing samples” under the tab of the same name.

On the personal side, I am the mother of four children ages 17, 5, 4 and 1. Within the next 30 days or so my children will be 18, 5, 4 and 2. I don’t know about anyone else, but I have found parenting this multi-generational group of children to be quite a challenge. How many times have you tried to focus on what you’re doing while a teenager gives you updates on their day and their AP level classes while pre-schoolers run around you as a toddler pulls at your hand saying, “Come ‘ear…. Come ‘ear…?”

Well, it does – at the very least – make for an interesting life. And that, my friends, is this woman’s world.
