Who is MrsBud?
A dear late friend and boss nicknamed me 'MrsBud' in 1986 and it stuck. My license plate has been 4MRSBUD since 1988. My husband Richard and I even owned a chain of MrsBud's Florist shops in Sacramento the early '90s.
I was born in Glendale, CA, in 1957 (hence the Twitter handle @MrsBud57). I grew up in a working-class neighborhood on the Glendale/Burbank border during the 1960's. Richard and I were married in 1983 and live in NW Los Angeles County.
My professional background is in book publishing, having started in college textbook production in 1978. I had a very successful (but stressful) career and semi-retired in 1996. Richard is a newspaper publisher in the South Bay of L.A., and we have published and sold newspapers and magazines over the last 30 years. I still do freelance editing and production from my home office graphics studio.
