My work has been included in Bon Appetit, Opera News, Decanter, Wine Spectator, Boat International USA and Four Seasons, to cite but a few. I have an uncanny knack for achieving the tone and style of absolutely any publication while still making my articles distinctively my own. My professional motto is "Give the editors exactly what they need." As a ghostwriter, I have written blogs and books for prominent figures. Several of those books are best-sellers. My contracts do not permit me to reveal names; client discretion is always assured.
