Award-winning Author and Actress Sara Taney-Humphreys Speaks in Nanuet
By Christine Leake, mentor, SUNY Empire State College
April 16, 2015
SUNY Empire will host author and actress Sara Taney-Humphreys speaking on "Publish, Perish, or Persevere: A journey to publishing" at the Hudson Valley's Nanuet location, 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, April 28.
Taney-Humphreys is a graduate of Marist College, with a B.A. in English Literature and Theater. Her initial career path after college was as a professional actress. Some of her television credits include "A&E Biography," "Guiding Light," "Another World," "As the World Turns" and "Rescue Me."
In 2013, her novel "Untamed" won two PRISM awards for Dark Paranormal and Best of the Best. Her sci-fi/fantasy/romance obsession began years ago with "Star Trek" and, she says, a crush on Captain Kirk. That sci-fi obsession soon evolved into the love of all types of fantasy/paranormal, vampires, ghosts, werewolves and shape shifters.
When she isn't writing books, Taney-Humphreys runs corporate trainings via her company Taney Speaker Training. Some of her clients include Excelsior College, United States Navy, Bettis Atomic Power Labs and Westchester County.
She is married to her college sweetheart, Will. They live in New York with their four boys.

Light refreshments will be served.
