TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a professional writer, having written for more than 35 years, with experience writing copy for the web, print media, and video. Currently I divide my time between writing for advertising agencies, design firms, and direct clients, including the surprisingly persnickety Department of Defense. Most important of all to me at this point in my career is my recent entry into writing fiction, with my first 3-part novel series planned for release by late 2017.
