Susan Rich: Rich Writer from the Get-Go
I wrote my first story, Sashblazer the Dancing Pony, when I was nine.
I’ve been writing ever since.
While I was scribing short stories and poetry, and flirting with ideas for my GAN (Great American Novel), I acquired a degree in journalism…which led to a career writing for newspapers and magazines.
Along the way I joined several major companies, including Boeing and Tektronix.
I learned how airplanes fly (and why they crash), and what goes on inside a logic analyzer (it isn’t logical if you’re not an engineer).
To that end, I managed PR and marketing campaigns, developed materials for product launches, and fought the good fight with Excel. I lost — which only goes to show that I write better than I can build a spreadsheet.
After two decades in the corporate sector, I left in 2004 to start my own business, and here I am.
