1.9 MILLION STORIES ONE PERSON AT A TIME

Two million people: one story at a time

 

“I’ve got a thing about people stories…

You see, every story is really a people story. For decades I have worked as a newspaper and television news writer and with that comes front row seat privilege to people stories. Those people taught me that within each of us is a comedy, a tragedy, a love story, a passion, a thriving success, a whopping failure, an uncommon strength, a vivid fantasy, life altering moments and even a hope or dream.

Broward People is about yours.

About Me

So why me? I have 30 years’ experience writing for WSVN-7, the Miami Herald and the Sun-Sentinel, as well as 13 years as a Broward County High School English teacher. I hold a BA in Communications/English from Michigan State University and a masters degree in Journalism from Florida International University. I edit and consult for authors on their books and have a niche expertise in micro-non-fiction.

Community Involvement

To write about Broward People, you have to be one yourself. I have lived and worked in this community since 1974.

My local passions include;

  • Creating the Writers Group for Gilda’s Club South Florida in 2009 and now offering once a month Memoir Writers groups sponsored by the Broward County Library.
  • Interviewing/writing for the Library of Congress Veterans history project by highlighting the veterans who live in Broward.
  • For 11 years, I have been part of a national champion competitive masters swimmer, Swim Fort Lauderdale (SFTL).

In my box o’ ribbons are also National Top Ten awards and a World Recognition award. I am also a TeamUSA Masters Swimming Bronze and Silver medal holder for the 19th Maccabi Games 2013, Netanya, Israel. I am not sure how the swimming is connected to the writing but I know in my heart that it is.
