How can this site help you? By showing you my abilities in researching and writing stories that are engaging and easy to understand, skills over a dozen publications call on regularly.
My parallel career in design and computers is the basis for my technology writing. I'm putting my love of movies and books to practical use in film and book reviews and am talking to the personalities in publishing and filmmaking as well as reporting on the art and business of both crafts. I'm also writing general features on everything from celebrities and business to ideas and culture.
I've written over 15 novels,
dozens of short stories, poetry, a journal now in its 22nd year and countless
other pieces of random creative thought. If you're curious about any of my
imaginative, creative or fiction writing, contact me.
