Overview

If you would have told me fifteen years ago that I would wear pajama pants to work instead of suits and pantyhose, I would have recommended you see a good therapist. Yet here I am interviewing the noteworthy and notorious… from former terrorists to CIA operatives to pop stars.

I'm an author, ghostwriter, editor, and speaker. Since I stepped onto this crazy road, I've written or collaborated on over fourteen books and written countless book proposals. I also provide manuscript evaluation, copyediting, and book doctoring services to other writers. The genres are varied: memoir, self-help, prescriptive nonfiction, middle grade fiction, historical fiction, anthology, business, and personal development. I've written for loads of magazines and newspapers—I especially enjoy personality profiles and research-intensive pieces.


Need help honing your message? If you have a business, you need a book, a content-rich website, and an informative blog. I can help you with them all, and we'll have some fun along the way. I can help you write your materials or write them for you. If you're just looking for an editor, I can do that too.
