Hi Everyone! What a long, strange trip it's been! I started my career in advertising, back in the days when we spliced film and audio reels by hand. I moved into copywriting, then licensing, then freelance writing. As more clients moved their promotional efforts in-house, it became necessary to find more stable work, so I thought I'd try substitute teaching. That quickly turned into a full-time job as an ESL tutor, which I enjoyed so much, I went back to school and earned my teaching license. That was the year more than 600 teachers got laid off, and most of the levies in the area failed. So I subbed for five, long years. I finally got hired by a non-profit organization to manage their after school programs; however, as it always seems to go with anything grant-funded, that job came to an end, and so here I am.
I have two awesome, grown children. I like fooling around with home improvement projects that involve power tools, sandpaper, and paint. I cook as a hobby these days. I volunteer to help women in transition get their lives back together. I use my garden as therapy. I love research and writing, and have never quite gotten over having a smart mouth, as my mother called it, which I hope will serve me well as I dive into this newfangled affiliate marketing stuff.
I have high hopes for this endeavor; my husband did some affiliate marketing a few years ago, and was actually earning money, but he left it because he hated writing. Maybe it's my turn. I'm pretty determined!
