A Little About Me

I’ve been writing for fun and profit since I was in junior high school which was over 50 years ago. First it was school newspapers or memos for the morning broadcast to the student body, then came magazine articles for major publications, poetry and short story manuscripts entered in contests at the suggestion of teachers. Advanced Placement English and Creative Writing classes in high school enhanced the creative urge and the craft was encouraged by teachers and local businesses who used my copy for advertising.

College saw more Literature, Creative Writing and Journalism classes until I realized that a career in writing was going to make me pennies and I needed to have a good paying job to pay the bills. That led to becoming a Registered Nurse and then certification as a Diabetes  Care and Education Specialist. Throughout my career as a nurse, I wrote blogs, newsletters and training manuals. In my spare time I wrote grant proposals for large and small organizations in health care and various other industries

Now retired from nursing and an empty nester I have returned to writing as my business focus. My goal is to use my writing skills to enhance the lives of others through continued blog posts and newsletters on my website. I’d also like to enjoy added income in the B2B & B2C worlds by being hired to supply email, blogs, newsletters, case studies and white papers. I have achieved White Paper certification through AWAI (American Writers and Artists Institute) to keep my skills up to date and relevant to today’s business world and consumer needs
