It's interesting to note that Coca-Cola was being marketed as a "global high sign" in this vintage ad from April of 1945. I'm off to work early this morning so have a Coke (and a smile!). It's the real thing! In fact, I just had one for breakfast.
First published in 1968 (I was 9!), I have been writing professionally part-time for more than two decades. I have been freelancing for various authors, editors and publishers for the past three years on the behind-the-scenes tasks of writing.
