I excelled in high school and college in writing and English courses, but I pursued art and marketing, as well as travel and tourism. I landed a job at an ad agency and had a lot of miscellaneous writing assignments to do while there, from scripts and booklets; to other things. I was also asked to moonlight for a business publication in New England, where I quickly excelled and became a “cover story” writer. I stayed up all hours of the night, writing and drinking wine.
