Who I Am

A fulltime non-fiction author with some chops:

  • Several of my books have hit #1 in their Amazon category.
  • One of my magazine articles was chosen for a Best Of book published by The Writer magazine.
  • One of my poems is in the 2017-2018 San Diego Poetry Annual
  • I belong to Western Writers of America (I wish I was as famously successful as fellow member Craig Johnson of Longmire).
  • I’ve been interviewed by the NY Times, Better Homes & Gardens, Kiplinger’s, and bunches of websites. You can also catch one of my podcast interviews over at The Creative Penn.

How I Can Help You

I written 30 books and hundreds of magazine and web articles. I know how to string words together so they 1) make sense; and 2) are beautiful. That’s what we all want, no?
