Former newspaper columnist (mostly humor), p.r. writer, and freelance writer. But, now I have a ‘real’ job.
Statistically, a “child of the ’60s,” my ideals are a peculiar hybrid. Those values imposed by parents of Brokaw’s “Greatest Generation” have always prevented me from embracing that “go with the flow/if it feels good, do it” philosophy of my own generation. Yet, how could any self-respecting Baby Boomer Pisces completely reject the “peace” and “love” of the Flower Power era?
Despite the aforementioned Piscean birthday, I am convinced I became a writer, because of that “children are to be seen and not heard” upbringing.
So, that’s me – a mixed bag of ideas and ideals. As for “just the facts, Ma’am,” Born in Syracuse, NY, I have lived in Texas for waaay too long. I have written all my life, and been paid for it for about the last 20 years.
