I have been writing, in some form or another, for as long as I can remember. As a youth I wrote poetry. (I wish that I knew where those many pieces of paper were today.) I started my professional career as a news reporter but quickly moved into advertising where I wrote radio and television add scripts. For the past 19 years I have been writing semi-technical "professional qualifications" submittals' for engineering services. I have also written countless stories for the newsletters of both social and professional organizations of which I have belonged. I am currently writing a semi-technical instructional book on a particular aspect of marketing. My first goal is to get this book published and focus on marketing and sales. I have been encouraged by readers of my newsletter articles, and would like to write a entertaining short story or book, most likely fictional.
Mostly technical at the moment. I would like to write about sailing stories and/or travel.
My background originated in broadcasting and print media; as a journalist/ on-air personality and then advertising writing and producing radio/TV commercials and designing print ads. I left media in '93 to market engineering services.
