I always thought I would communicate in the world as a writer. As a child, I was a voracious reader and knew someday I would pen a great novel. But life sometimes takes left turns and I went to broadcasting school instead of a four-year college. I did spend thirty years having fun, spinning records, interviewing people, doing love song dedications. In Seattle I worked at KLSY and hosted the popular Lights Out Program from 1990 until 1995. I made a move to Warm 106.9 and hosted Love Songs in the evening and then later moved to mid-day. In 1997, I was hired by Magic 92.5 in San Diego where I hosted a midday show. In 1998 I was selected as the Best Mid-Day Music Show in San Diego at the First Annual A.I.R Awards. (Achievement in Radio.)

I had a ball until…Congress passed a law in 1996 allowing broadcast corporations to own multiple radio stations in one market. Well, the gobbling began and soon behemoth corporations ate up radio stations like locusts in a wheat field. Radio announcers like me were axed on bloody Fridays with surgical precision. I left radio, went to work for the US Federal Government, and in my private hours, began doing what I really loved doing—writing. For the last two years, I have been selected as one of the 50 Great Authors You Should Be Reading by the Authorshow.com.
