I’ve worked with the written word in one form or another since the high school student newspaper. Along with a career in journalism as an editor and newspaper executive, I’ve also spent years writing, studying, and learning the art and craft of fiction. For the past few years, I’ve edited fiction and non-fiction manuscripts for published, agented, and emerging writers.
I have published two novels through Evolved Publishing. Hannah’s Voice is available through Amazon for print and e-book, and through Barnes & Noble in print. Carry Me Away is also available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
The newspaper biz has taken my family and me from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina and Texas, and from seven years in Washington, D.C., to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, I’m as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas. I now reside in a small community in Wisconsin where I manage the business operations of a daily newspaper. The variety of places I’ve lived and visited serve as settings for the characters who invade my head.
I enjoy helping writers almost as much as I enjoy writing. It’s a thrill when authors I’ve worked with land an agent or a publishing contract. It’s exciting to watch a developing writer grow and mature, to see a writer resolve a plot issue, round out his characters, or find her voice, and to have played a small role in that growth.
I look forward to working with you to make your writing the best it can be, and help you on your way to publication. And please check out my novels, short stories, and articles on the craft of writing fiction.
