I have been in the publishing industry for over 20 years and have written extensively about writing instruments, watches and jewelry for consumer and trade magazines. During this time I have visited many of the world’s most prestigious writing instrument and watch manufacturers, and I particularly enjoy interviewing artists, designers and corporate executives to understand their motivations and perspectives. I have served as editor for various luxury publications, and am a former owner of Pen World magazine and editor of Stylus magazine and the Stylus Annual, a yearly compendium of the major pen brands—their histories, news and products. I have been a keynote speaker at a variety of collector events and trade shows, and I have been quoted in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and International Herald Tribune, among others, for my expertise in writing instruments and timepieces. I am currently managing editor at iW magazine and owner of Nancy Olson, Ink., a marketing company based in Houston.
