The long version

Winter D. Prosapio
, previous to becoming a full time mother and author, was an expert in media relations and both internal and external communications, with over 18 years experience in Fortune 500 companies, city government and not-for-profit settings. She opened a theme park, handled all communications for a 2 billion dollar oil and gas merger and led a grass roots tort reform movement.  

Now she is a writer, novelist, essayist and occassional poet. Her topics run the gamet from parenting, to travel, to trivia, to features.

Winter has served on the boards of several different non-profits including JumpStart Theater in San Antonio, Canyon Lake Animal Shelter Society and Texas Hearing and Service Dogs.  She has also served on eight different review panels for the National Endowment for the Arts reviewing literature grants throughout the country.

Winter and her husband, Adam, are proud parents of Sierra and Mireya, inspirations for Crib Notes, her weekly humor column. (samples here).

Her coolest job was  at the  planetarium in El Paso during college.  There she excelled in the daily competition to create dizzying laser light star shows which would drive even the strongest constitutions into the rest rooms.

Winter's writing has appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, the New Braunfels Herald Zeitung, the San Antonio Express-News, Parent:Wise, Texas Co-op Magazine, Working Mother Magazine and numerous websites including long story short and
