Jacqueline Shortell-McSweeney

Jacqueline Shortell-McSweeney writes only when inspired, or when her Muse, Noreen, stands over her with a metaphorical rolling pin. At other times, she has worked as a producer for Women Make Movies, a video artist at Henry St., Settlement, first union woman grip on the East Coast, and then, as a lawyer, in hopes she could sue some of those responsible for her Me-Too moments in the union. Finally, as an attorney for Women's Venture Fund, Ms. Shortell-McSweeney worked with women entrepreneurs. Now retired to her writing desk, her detective story, DR. ALTMAN AND THE CONCUBINES, will be published in late Spring. Then, The Muse wants to see her other work, EVERGLAAZED, completed.
