Being raised on a strict diet of books certainly has its benefits. A childhood reading regimen requiring the completion of at least three books a week transformed a young bookworm into a master wordsmith. And, though she may never have written a book in her life, Liz Bollinger is still an accomplished author with a considerable body of work.
Her copywriting slogans from Things Remembered, Pizza Hut and Checkers/Rally’s are eye-catching, creative and serve as a great complement to graphics and photos. Her work isn’t just easy on the eyes, it’s great on the ears, too. Bollinger’s TV news scripts have been broadcast throughout the streets of Cleveland, the farms of Toledo, Ohio and the mountains of Oak Hill, West Virginia.
A woman who grew up feasting on books must, of course, write for the stomach, so Bollinger created restaurant write-ups for coupon books like the Entertainment Dining Club and the Our Town and All- Around and Presentations Dining Directories.
Though her excessive reading made her into a great writer, too much of anything will, inevitably, cause some problems. Bollinger’s biggest challenge is that she can’t read anything without a red pen in hand, scanning for errors that may have been overlooked upon first glance.
The upside is that her work is always clean of mistakes. The downside is that her fingers are usually splotchy from red ink.
Despite those red fingers, Bollinger continues to be coveted by employers large and small, public and private for her ability to always find the write words at the right times.
