“My first typewriter couldn’t type the letter o. I had to type a c and fill in the rest with Biro. I ranted at my boss: “I’m a professional writer! I can’t be expected to work this way!”

“Curiosity led me down the copywriter’s path, I liked the thought of telling the story of a business by choosing the right words.
