Diary: Hi-tech PR life could still be brought to book

Former hi-tech PR executive Terri Paddock publishes her first book next month called Beware the Dwarfs. She claims it is not about PR but having read the back of the book I am not so sure.

Former hi-tech PR executive Terri Paddock publishes her first book

next month called Beware the Dwarfs. She claims it is not about PR but

having read the back of the book I am not so sure.



The blurb says: ’Beware the Dwarfs is the story of Charlotte, Harriet,

Liz, Rebecca, Joyce and a few of the men who lurk at the perimeters. The

main thing which unites them is their desire to be something in life -

to be ’big’ players.’



Hmm, I wonder where Paddock’s inspiration came from? Previously she

worked as an account director at Firefly Communications, and at Text 100

before that. She left Firefly 18 months ago to concentrate on writing

full time.



’My former colleagues and clients can rest easy,’ she insists. ’This

book has nothing to do with PR.’



But as a word of warning she adds: ’Having said that, I’ve always

thought that the world of PR is the ideal setting for a great morality

tale. I wouldn’t rule it out for future books!’
