personalAbout Me

It was a day I’ll never forget. My dad returned from overseas with a brand new Sony reel-to-reel tape recorder for me.

As someone interested in music, I immediately began talking into the machine, thus “creating” my own radio station. So began an obsession that turned into a vocation, starting with my first radio job in college. That part-time weekend job opened the door to a career as a disc jockey, news and traffic announcer and operations manager.  Looking back with satisfaction at an accomplished radio career, I realized that throughout that journey from radio to writing, I was constantly writing and editing.

Out On My Own

In fact, I’ve written and edited copy for national broadcasters, metropolitan area newspapers and the Internet for more than 30 yearsThat experience taught me how to write and edit my own as well as the work of others to grab a reader’s attention and get to the pointIn 2011, I launched Ficere Writing Solutions to help others communicate their message with clarity and precision. Since then, I’ve written for, The Presidential Prayer Team, The Deer Valley Times and many othersI’ve served as an editor/proofreader for articles published in Phoenix area magazines, edited or co-edited a dozen books and written hundreds of business blogs on a variety of topics.


In 2017, I added LinkedIn Consultant to my repertoire, helping business professionals develop and build their LinkedIn profiles. That also helps them expand their influence through this powerful social media platform.
