My mother was a high school English teacher and my grandfather was the editor of a major newspaper. I was fortunate to grow up in an environment where good use of language and the written word were encouraged.
Until recently all my writing experience was copy writing for radio and some TV commercials. I've never really thought of myself as a writer, even though I was the darling of every English teacher I had all through high school and college. Too many people who do think of themselves as writers are just hacks, it seems to me, and I'd prefer not to be lumped among them.
I hope my writing appeals to readers who appreciate well written material, but I'd rather not be called a writer. Rather, I like to think of myself as a person lucky enough to have lived a wondrous variety of experiences who sometimes chooses to write about them.
