After working for small businesses and with small business owners, I left the safety and security of a full-time, salaried position I held for nearly fifteen years to branch out on my own -- at the age of 55! If that isn't a blind leap of faith, I don't know what is. I was fortunate in my last job to be given the opportunity to put my love for the English language and writing to task as an editor/writer for financial industry news. As an independent, freelance writer and editor - and business support specialist - I hope to expand into other areas. I'm excited about the opportunity to do that with Storyteller Alley and the opportunity to help flourishing authors publish books that capture the interest and excitement of their readers.
