Fresh Ideas for Outstanding Copy

 I began the technical writing portion of my writing skills at the age of 10, when my father began teaching me how to write technical reports for him.  Why?  We lived in Alaska when I was growing up, and in his job, he frequently traveled to bush locations investigating aircraft accidents.  Many times, he would come home, drop his notes, and head right back to the airport to fly out again. Occasionally there was  more work than Mom could finish.  So it became a part of our lives - sitting side-by-side at the typewriters putting Dad's notes into the correct format.

After we left Alaska, my writing continued, moving more toward short stories and poetry. 

Move forward in time to the career I'm about to complete and you will find me writing technical manuals, Special Reports to Congress, and (my two favorite) training presentations and newsletters.  With the cancellation of the in-house newsletter came blog posts, and e-newsletters.

At one point, I left my job to become a full time care-giver to my aging parents.  Keeping them at home to allow them to live out their days with their pets and familiar things around them became my passion.  This has led me to blog about my experiences with the idea of making this blog a place where baby boomer care-givers can find empathy, as well as blogs and articles about the amazing things now available to help those in a care-giving situation. My writing is conversational and based on input from my client and appropriate research.

Hence, my decision to move into copywriting as a new career.  I offer:
