My writing combines hobbies I enjoy -- writing and wine tasting. I enjoyed writing at an early age but waited to enjoy wine until a more respectable age.


Background Information

I began practicing the art of wordscribing from the time I could first read and write; putting together books and writing poems.  My entire family encouraged me to write, but it was my father and grandfather, both of whom wrote that were key in my love of literature. 
 
While my personal interests and creative side demanded that I find an outlet for my writing, the reality of life and a business career keep me focused on operational aspects of business in technical fields. I was fortunate that I found a creative outlet for some of my writing by supporting business writing needs.  These projects started with company newsletters then progressed to copy writing and article publication as a small part of my career.  I even managed to sneak a few original poems into the mix.
 
As a versatile wordscriber, I have seen my business writing in broad distribution print media for the past twenty-five years. Publications have included nationally distributed catalogs, newspapers and magazine articles.  I have published Wine and Sweet Words and have two other books on wine ready to release this year.

Additional Information

New Book for The Wine or Quote Lover Wine and Sweet Words, a compilation of quotes that everyone will find enjoyable has just been released. February 18, 2010 Richmond, Virginia -- Author Margot Dillard has used her knowledge of wine and enjoyment of quotes, sayings and toasts to create an enticing book; Wine and Sweet Words. Since Margot first began gathering quotes, idioms, and toasts from the greats of literature and the unknown, she has found a niche by interlacing wine history with these wise words. Her inspiration for the title was the quote from Plautus, a Roman playwright, from more than 2000 years ago he wrote, “Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.” The result of her efforts--a book that captures and presents quotes from thousands of years ago to current wine witticisms of today. Margot has identified wine topics and presented them in chapters that include: The Essence of Wine, Maturing is for Wine, Prescription for Health, Here’s to Happiness, Indulge a Little and many other enjoyable chapters. ”Putting together these idioms and quotes on drinking wine, along with a little encouragement from my favorite Virginia crushed grapes urged me to share some of my own poems and thoughts,” according to Margot. Wine and Sweet Words is now available at major online booksellers, including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com, as well as distribution channels.
