While earning my Master's Degree from Ohio University on a full fellowship, I taught writing to freshman college students. I enjoyed teaching more than any other requirement for my degree. My B.A. is in English and I graduated magna cum laude from UMass at Dartmouth. I was invited by my English advisor to teach a class to sophomores on William Faulkner in preparation for graduate school.
For the past 20 years I've owned and operated a boutique book pr firm, writing press materials and talking points for first-time authors and famous writers, too. Paul R. Krugman, New York Times OpEd Columnist and Nobel Lauriate in Economics has been my client since 1999. We have launched 8 of his books and conducted author tours across the country, comprising 8 - 26 cities. The biography I wrote for him was read during the Nobel Prize ceremony.
Every day I do writing on behalf of my clients and I train the publicists in my firm to write clearly. My firm is known for is excellent written materials and for taking the essence of a book and pitching it into the news. Many of our business clients have built million dollar businesses after a successful book launch. Some my most successful clients include C.K. Prahalad, Warren Bennis, Bill George, Michael Bloomberg whom I represented before he became Mayor, Ken Blanchard and Ambassador Joe Wilson.
