Publisher and Editor, Shoreline Web News
Never one to toe the line, she announced her intention to follow in her great-grandfather’s footsteps and run a newspaper.
Thomas Fletcher had been the editor of one of England’s former national newspapers, “The Daily Chronicle.”
Rapidly and firmly advised that such a choice was not “appropriate”, Olwen entered the world of efficiency analysis and subsequently rose through various companies to become a senior financial manger at the multi-national soft-tissue giant, Kimberly-Clark.
After the birth of her first child, she left to form her own management consultancy, based in Canterbury, England, which specialized in Public Relations.
After moving to the US courtesy of her husband’s employer and spending a productive four years (two more children) in Terre Haute, Ind., Olwen then moved to Old Lyme, Conn., in 1994.
Having worked for several years as a Staff Writer for the Main Street News in Essex, Conn. (and added a fourth child), she is now thrilled to be pursuing the career of which she always dreamed … though not in a medium that she ever imagined. Contact Olwen at email@example.com
