Gail S. Kibby White


I was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1935. I’m divorced with two wonderful children (a daughter and a son) and a granddaughter. In 1975, my children and I relocated to the Tampa Bay, Florida area where we still reside. I have been truly blessed. Life has been good to me.


I began my career in the business world as a secretary right out of high school in June, 1953. Since then I’ve worked as Administrative and Executive Secretary and as a Supervisor and Administrator in middle management in several companies in addition to owning and running my own secretarial service out of my home for 18 + years.

In 1986 after nine years of night college, I graduated from St. Petersburg College with an AA Degree in Banking and Finance.

In 1998, after working in the business world for over 45 years at the encouragement of my family and friends, I made the decision to take early retirement and go into business for myself. I formed Tailored PC Documents (a sole proprietorship) as a home-based secretarial service providing remote secretarial services to businesses and individuals throughout the English-speaking world.

In 2012, I decided to put together all of the secrets and shortcuts I’ve learned to create two books. One is to be titled How to Establish, Run and Build a $ucce$$ful Secretarial Service From Home. The other will be titled Dictation Transcription Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Shortcuts. These books are based upon my own personal experiences. I’ve used these experiences as examples and illustrations.

In 2013, I wrote and published an ebook in Smashwords.com titled, How to Record Meetings and Seminars for Transcription. Working with a Transcriptionist. Here is the URL to that book: How to Record Meetings & Seminars for Transcription. Working With a Transcriptionist. Please refer to the pages in this site for more information about these books.

In 2014 I launched into writing mystery-suspense-thriller novels. I have almost completed the first book titled Susan’s Stalkers – Double the Fear which will be Book #1 in a series of Susan’s Stalkers books.

In May, 2016, I published a short story as a FREE ebook titled A Box of Tissues, 2 Rolls of Toilet Paper and a Plastic Bottle of Water in Smashwords.com which is a “free to subscribe” ebook publishing site. Here is the URL to that book: A Box of Tissues, 2 Rolls of Toilet Paper and A Plastic Bottle of Water. I’ve added pages about all of my books in case you should happen to have an interest in mystery-suspense-thriller novels in addition to my self-help books.

2016: For almost 19 years I have successfully provided professional secretarial services to businesses and individuals throughout the United States and even in England without ever leaving my home. This year I decided it’s time to phase out Tailored PC Documents and concentrate on my writing. The business has had a “great run”. I’ve met many wonderful people and taken on projects I never dreamed of before.


July, 2016: I set up this blog site to pass along some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way to assist transcriptionists and those who would like to work from home running their own secretarial services business providing remote services to individuals and businesses.

From time to time I plan to post tips, tricks, shortcuts and secrets about transcription, running your own secretarial service from home and computer tips to help you work smarter and more efficiently. In addition, I plan to use this site to keep my readers updated as to the progress of the publication of my mystery-suspense novels.
