About Me

A bit about me

I provide my clients with high quality, professional writing services. Past experience in personal finance, writing for business, government, as well as non-profit agencies gives me the versatility to write on a broad range of topics.


I write poetry and short stories. They provide me with an enjoyable avenue to explore creativity through fiction. I have completed my first novel, "Train Hoppers." The quest for an agent is underway. My second novel is nearing completion.


 I love to write. It's a life long addiction.

I want my readers to enjoy my creations as much as I do in writing them.
 

How did I get here?

Yes, the photo dates me. I've been writing a long time. Since high school. Join the navy and see the world the recruiter said. So I did. Through a long career in the navy I maintained journals of the amazing places I have visited. Naval officers write a lot, mostly for senior officers. To avoid tedious rewrites  I quickly hoisted in the elements of sound writing. Reading is the grist of writing. Books are stacked everywhere. I can't bear to part with them. They are daily reminders of the authors quest, creativity in print.

How do I do it?

I write daily, the heap of completed journals fill a shelf. No topic is too small to merit a page. My approach to writing is meticulous research. Like the carpenters old adage, "Measure twice, cut once."
