Professional Experience

Freelance Author/Writer/Ghost and Navy Vet. Have ghosted full-time since 2011 writing articles, books, and book proposals. I have just closed my 7th book in the past 3 years and I am on the hunt for new projects. One was a memoir for a decorated World War II Veteran and member of The American Legion; another was a book on Homeopathic Depression Remedies for a nationally-known healthcare expert. I'm the owner of Fiction Factorium, and speak and teach about subjects ranging from the basics of public speaking to self-improvement to freelancing. I enjoy helping others make lasting positive changes in their lives through my work as an author, speaker, and volunteer.
