Gayla G. is from the Kansas farmlands, but travels throughout the US, Europe and the Middle East to broaden her horizons and feed her curiosity. Her years of experience include owning a typesetting and graphics studio where she not only set type, but was hands on as the key proofreader and editor; checking the galleys as they came out of the processor and again before handing them over to the printer. In addition, she owned a specialty advertising business but left it all behind some six years ago when she could not escape the urge to become a professional writer. She trained as a technical writer and, as they say, the rest is history.

Technical Training

Finishing the technical writing course, Gayla G. set out on a career of User Guides and Owners Manuals. Fun stuff, but that career was short-circuited by freelance writing jobs that were thrown her way. One article lead to the next and five years later she has become a busy (and very satisfied) content writer. She writes individual and corporate bios, pens posts for international blogs on varying subjects, creates travel articles for Yahoo, writes book reviews and summarizes short videos. Additionally, she writes loads of content covering a multitude of disciplines including medical issues, women's concerns, the wine industry and business. She is a ghostwriter of other people's autobiographies as well as a proofreader and editor. She takes advantage of her background in the medical field to work as a medical transcriptionist. While working with a journalist for a year she wrote for his news site, Israel News Agency, which is indexed by Google. During that period, she also wrote numerous marketing texts and press releases for hi-tech companies and helped prepare marketing campaigns. Of course, everything she writes is optimized for the web.

Out for Fun

Gayla G. loves to write, but she makes time to be stimulated by the world around her. She's a doula who helps women throughout the birth experience, a folk harpist who plays with two groups and a volunteer policeman who suits up for weekly patrols. She has worked in busy emergency rooms, cared for with hospice patients, listened to the stories of the elderly and currently transcribes radiology reports. She accompanies her husband around the world to visit museums, absorb nature and enjoy meeting interesting people.

From the Mouth of Michelangelo

Michelangelo said that you don't have to be talented to learn to draw. Anyone who spends ten minutes a day drawing will become talented. Gayla G. found the same holds true for writing, as not a day goes by where she doesn't make time to put down words.
