Episode Notes: Upcoming panelist at 7th Annual NAWBO Day in Pittsburgh and prolific author and ghost writer, Jay Speyerer, would probably not like to be called a mechanic or a technician but he knows his way around the English language and the silly mistakes that many make in their writing.| Jay Speyerer has been a speaker, a writer, and an educator for more than 30 years, successfully helping people achieve their goals in memoir writing, book publishing, email issues, cross-cultural communication, and presentation skills.| Owner of Legacy Road Communications, Jay ghost-writes peopleâ??s biographies because he believes we are defined by our stories.| Also check Jay out on November 21 at 7th Annual NAWBO Day in Pittsburgh on our Wealthy and Wise Author Panel to Teach You How a Book Can Turn You into THE EXPERT in your field. Hint: He'll be the only guy on the panel. So you will recognize him.
Owner of Legacy Road Communications, Jay ghost-writes people’s biographies because he believes we are defined by our stories. Abducted as an infant and raised by a pride of feral house cats, his story telling skills were solidly established at an early age. Now he helps others tell their stories. What happened to you -- good and bad -- and how did you deal with it? Those are stories. Collect enough of them and you have a memoir.
Jay was on the faculty of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, teaching photography, communication, non-linear scriptwriting, and full-contact taxidermy. Having been a professional photographer, he is a very visual writer. Sadly, he also is a very verbal photographer.
Jay is the past-president of the National Speakers Association/Pittsburgh chapter, and he is the author of three books, The Stories of Our Days, Cat Got Your Thumb?, and Cat Got Your Treadmill? (newly released in an expanded edition). Jay is proud and honored that his colleague, Jill Cueni-Cohen, used The Stories of Our Days as the text for her award-winning memoir-writing class in Switzerland.
Recently, he misplaced his keys.
But he has not misplaced his command and knowledge of the technology of the English language.
So listen in this morning and call in and ask him questions also.
