Penny Fletcher

Writer, Editor, and Coach

As a journalist for almost forty years, I can’t imagine ever having writer’s block. I’ve met too many people and seen too many things for that. Having sipped tea in china cups in million-dollar mansions and drank coffee from what was once a corn can while sitting on tires in homeless camps, I have more characters and scenarios in my head than there will ever be time to write. Having a day job as a reporter and Bureau Editor for Sunbelt Newspapers & Media General Communications Inc. and a columnist for The Tampa Tribune wasn’t enough. I wrote for national magazines, too, including three of MacFadden Enterprises womens’ favorites back in the day, True Love, True Story, and True Confessions, as well as Gulf Coast Fisherman and Today’s Christian Woman before they went to an online format. I also edited and trained for the papers for years. Hence, it was only natural that on the side, I also gravitated to editing and coaching both from Amazon’s first publishing venture BookSurge and Guru.com and after that editing about 300 books to date from people finding me online. I also taught creative writing and memoirs at The Center4 for LifeLong Learning in Sun City Center, Florida., a noncredit college for seniors over 55. 

I’ve written three books for publishing companies that are now out of business and two for an online publisher under a pseudonym in a genre I don’t write in anymore. So just concentrating on what you can find here on Amazon and what I have coming up next, check out my Books page. It’s got all the links you need to read reviews and order the books.

I suppose readers like to know something personal about the authors they follow, so I’ll give you a few lines about that. I grew up in Asbury Park, N.J., and rode my bike to the beach when I was seven years old. I had my first summer job (at a beach club, of course!) at 14 and have worked at various things since- In hotel offices and convenience stores, always starting as “dirty-job” help and ending up as manager. I had four kids in six years, and when my first husband came home from Vietnam, he was brutal. That’s when I decided to leave his home state of Tennessee and go to Florida, where I had lived briefly before, and help start two shelters and a whole new life. My next husband was wonderful, and I inherited two of his four kids to raise at 5 and 8. Later, I adopted a granddaughter who I raised from seven months to 23. The “good” husband died in 2003, and I threw myself into work and causes… oh, and love of kids and grandkids and all the wonderful dogs and cats that have filled our home over the years. That’s enough about me here. If you want my whole story, starting in an orphanage, read TRUE STORIES OF HELP FROM THE OTHER SIDE. I could never have made it this long without the angelic help I credited in that book.

Featured Work

Entitled The Little Book of Media Secrets, Penny’s latest book is an eye-opener to anyone who wants factual information about why media has changed so much since the 1980s.

The book is probably the only one of its kind written without any slant. Any editorial comment in it is marked as commentary in big, bold letters, and all sources of facts are named. Many links are provided for readers to follow so they can dig as deep as they want.
