After a career editing and ghostwriting, Writers’ Program instructor Jeanne De Vita is excited to launch what Amazon has called a “breakout debut” on Amazon’s new platform for serialized fiction Kindle Vella. Published under the pen name Callie Chase, De Vita wrote Bug as a dystopian series set in LA at the start of the zombie apocalypse. It’s accessible via the main website or through the Kindle app for iOS users.
Of her experience teaching in the Writers’ Program, Jeanne says, “Connecting with writers and editors as they work to learn they skills they need to make brands, platforms, and careers in publishing is so fulfilling and exciting–not to mention motivating! Teaching at UCLA Extension has been such a joy and I hope after working with me my students are inspired to do more and dream bigger.”
