. . . and a lifetime
writing for myself.

    . . . as a Magazine Editor: For 12 years I wrote features and
    oversaw work of staff and freelance writers for national trade magazines,
    including Baking Industry, Hardware Merchandiser, Hardlines Wholesaling,
    and Construction Equipment Distribution.  

    . . . as Senior Account Executive for a Major PR Firm: I edited
    staff-written features for Burson-Marsteller for six years, while writing and
    placing hundreds of my own articles with appropriate trade magazines and
    writing and producing three company magazines.  I also developed and ran
    client communications programs, winning the nation’s top PR award—the
    Public Relations Society of America’s Silver Anvil—for innovative
    programming.  I also won Chicago’s top PR trophy (the Golden Trumpet) three
    years running.  

    . . . as an Independant PR Consultant: As owner of McNair
    Marketing Communications for 22 years, I traveled the country visiting my
    clients’ customers to write features showing how they used the clients’
    services and products to solve problems.  I placed those articles in trade
    publications read by other potential client customers.  

    For my own gratification, I wrote six published novels
    and four non-fiction books.

    Here are my four romance novels...   

                           Mystery at Magnolia Mansion
                           Mystery on Firefly Knob
                           Waiting for Backup! (co-authored)
                           BJ, Milo, and the Hairdo from Heck    
  two young adult novels...

                           The Long Hunter
                           Attack of the Killer Prom Dresses
  ...a short story compilation...

                           The Old Man on the Park Bench

    . . . and four how-to books.
