Resident Spotlight: Phyllis Zeno

Phyllis Zeno began her career writing music and lyrics for CBS's Fred Waring and His Pennsylvanians television show. In later years, Phyllis worked solely in words as the founding editor of AAA Going Places magazine, which covered Florida, Georgia and Tennessee. Now "retired," Phyllis is not about to give up writing. She still contributes frequently to Chicken Soup for the Soul and other publications. When Phyllis moved to Asbury Methodist Village as a newlywed a couple months ago, she found a new outlet for her writing talents – a brand-new blog called The Asbury Perspective.
