About the author

I write best in bite-sized pieces and in borrowed rooms.

So far I've written three novels, numerous essays, have two collections of vignettes in progress, and have published a business book.

Over the years I've been a journalist, editor, and publisher, a science writer, a public relations practitioner, a diplomat, and I have taught both creative writing and journalism at the university level. Along the way I won awards for my reporting and was honored with the top award of the Florida Public Relations Association, the Golden Image Award. I also have done public speaking and on-air radio and TV interviews and guest appearances, and am proficient at obtaining media coverage.

I've always been a bit of a maverick in my writing, as in other aspects of life. I love experimenting with cross-over formats and genres and am not afraid to bend the rules when that is called for. But I do know the rules which, as we've all been told, is the first condition of being able to bend them.

Along with my writing, I offer my services to assist other authors with their work. As with my writing, I edit and critique both fiction and non-fiction, and recently completed an extensive rewrite project of an historical memoir written by a former editor of mine and provisionally accepted by a major academic publisher. I give great attention to detail and respect the need for believability and accuracy, whatever the genre. I'd be happy to consult with you on your project.
