Writing Specialties

Well-versed in SEO (Search Engine Optimization), WordPress and Social Media Jane specializes in online articles about travel, lifestyle and art, but her previous experience in sales and marketing adds business savvy to her words.

Other Writing Interests

Years of being the primary care-giver for several elderly members of her family provided first hand experience in compassionate care-giving.  Matters of Faith are another area of special interest.  Though it’s not needed in much of her professional writing, she’s always glad when her sense of humor is allowed free reign.

Education and Business Experience

As far back as elementary school Jane was recognized for her skill with words – at school, at home, at church and in her extra-curricular activities.  She never stopped writing, but her parents directed her towards the business world when she went away to college.  After three decades of a successful career in a variety of fields (including, residential real estate, office equipment sales and marketing, retail merchandising and credit card banking) Jane returned to school and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art & Performance Magna Cum Laude with School Honors from the University of Texas at Dallas.

The Travel Talk Blog 

Jane has a passion for travel – here, there and everywhere.  “Here” is Dallas, Texas, her hometown, and from there she hopes to travel everywhere!  If the travel bug’s bitten you, then you’ll understand.

Though travel is her passion, it’s not her profession.  Her experiences in the restaurants, attractions and accommodations along the way are those of the casual traveler.  Getting no special privileges out there, no words are minced here.  She plans all her own vacations and pays for it out of the family budget.  Her most frequent traveling companion is her husband, Bill, but good friends and family often come along for the ride, especially  Deb, her bestie.  Jane is the owner of most of the photos published here and if she’s not, she provides a link, so you’ll know where they came from.  Just for the record, some of her photos were taken by Bill and Deb.

Jane has been blogging as a hobby since 2011.  In those years she tried a variety of subjects, but landed on travel, art and lifestyle as her favorites.  In 2014, she started blogging for others as well.  Perhaps she’d be a good fit for your blog.

Creative Writing

Along with writing for business, Jane enjoys creative writing.  Below are examples of her poetry which have been published in literary journals.  She also writes memoirs and short stories.  Currently she’s shopping for a publisher for a comic novel about “active senior living” written while taking care of her elderly family members.
