In 1990 my Mom, who was a medical and scientific illustrator for the CDC in Atlanta, was killed by proper use of prescription drugs. Since I was a journalism major in college and always enjoyed research, I put my education to use and started to study the health-care industry -- and I was appalled at what I learned.
I don't want others to suffer the way my Mom did, and I certainly don't want other families to lose a loved one because of a legal drug used according to a doctor's prescription. And that's what lead me to a variety of writing activities, including freelance writing for medical professionals as well as publishing provided through my company, Cherokee Rose Publishing.
I also studied Health Coaching, to enhance my skills in the wellness arena.
I was the Director of Publications for two nutritional products companies, where my love of writing and my passion for health education was put to good use. I wrote and oversaw the production of newsletters, broadcast newspapers, magazines, sales flyers, marketing materials, brochures, and training manuals, and lectured on health and wellness throughout the USA.
In 1995, I broke my neck while working as a contractor for Turner Broadcasting, where I was writing quality control manuals in the accounting department (I also have an associate degree in accounting). Since I was no longer able to work (actually, Turner fired me because I was "disabled" - I know you won't believe that, but I have the letter to prove it), I decided to freelance. During my three years in rehabilitation, I wrote two contract books.
Robert A. Nash, MD, of Virginia Beach, hired me to write his book Common Sense Medicine - a medical doctor's prescription for health care in America.
MGM was making a motion picture, At First Sight, starring Val Kilmer, which was adapted from the true story of Shirl & Barb Jennings, of Atlanta. So, Barb & Shirl hired me to write the REAL story, At First Sight - the Shirl Jennings story.
In college (Georgia State University) my area of study was News Journalism (back in the day we published only facts), so I was schooled in economy of words -- be succinct and don't take up too much space!
I still write that way - with my tag line that writing must Inform, Inspire, and Entertain.
Glow Kids won a national business contest by Sprint, and I spent two days in NY with Jeffrey Seller, a Broadway producer.
I am the Financial Officer for CCMA, a non-profit that mentors socially and economically disadvantaged young men in the downtown Atlanta community.
With my favorite sports-talk guy Matt Chernoff of 680 The Fan.
Since I am a writer about wellness, I was invited to talk to the Atlanta chapter meeting of HEAL (Human Ecology Action League). Anyone who is interested in both the environment and their health will find a wealth of information on their site.
