My first co-authored book was RX For Hospitals with Philip Hassen who was CEO at the world-renowned St. Joseph’s Health Center in London, Canada. I then provided my writing and editing services to a subsequent book, Re-Inventing Hospitals, on the subject of health care reform. My third book, The Canadian Consumer's Guide to Health Care, was released nationally by McGraw-Hill Ryerson Inc. and received considerable media attention. In 2001, I began an ongoing collaboration with David Patchell-Evans, president of GoodLife Fitness Clubs (the world’s largest chain of fitness clubs owned by a single individual) as chief editor of a book on the role of fitness, health, and quality of life. Entitled Living the Good Life: Your Guide to Health and Success, this book is in its fourth printing and has over one million copies currently in circulation, as well as being released in audiobook format. In 2009, I assisted David Patchell-Evans with his second book, The Real Sexy, Smart and Strong (published by John Wiley & Sons and released September 2009—it has reached bestseller status in its category {Health – Body and Mind} in Canada and the US.)

With former Special Forces officer Jim Pritchard, I edited the book The Warrior Mind, released by Amacom in New York in January 2006. I recently edited a book by motivational speaker and corporate trainer Robert Parker (who works with Duke University’s Corporate Education), called The Pit Crew Challenge. In the self-publishing field, I have extensive experience with assisting authors who are choosing to self-publish. These projects have included writing and editing a book on masterminding entitled The Elevator Effect with mastermind coaches Marcus Paton and Sona E. Van Der Hoop; a book entitled Life is Change – Growth Is Optional with award-winning business teacher and inspirational speaker Antonia Van Haeren; a book coaching and editing project with business entrepreneur and novelist James Harris for his exciting sci-fi book The Third Craft (published in early 2008); providing editing services to arts maven Jonathon Bancroft-Snell for his books on the legendary ceramic artists Walter Dexter and Ruth Gowdy McKinley; coaching the content of a dynamic and inspirational audio memoir by Christina Doyle (a 14-year survivor of one of the rarest forms of cancer); serving as content developer and editor for Kenneth D. Foster's newly revised bestselling book Ask and You Will Succeed (revised edition released by Wiley, May 2009); acting as development editor of a medical memoir with Chicago-based Dr. Jennifer Hasenyager Smith, MD; editor of the book, The Gift of Job Loss by Michael Froehls, PhD; editor of the book A Sense of the Sea, by Brian Whitehouse, PhD and numerous others.

In addition, I am the author of hundreds of newspaper articles and feature magazine articles, covering a vast array of topics—including health care, environment, science, nature, the arts, popular culture, psychology, spirituality, and business. I have also been a teacher of English literature, the coordinator of media literacy projects, and a teacher in adult education. I am currently teaching a new creative writing workshop series entitled The Writer’s Eye-View.
In the world of TV production as a scriptwriter and content producer for TV documentaries and educational video, some of my projects include a six-part documentary series, Dads Under Construction (about the process of men becoming first-time fathers); the full-length documentary, Circle of All Nations (about world-renowned native elder William Commanda, dubbed the “Dalai Lama of First Nations”); the feature documentary Autism – There’s Hope Out There (featuring ground-breaking medical research aimed at uncovering the cause of autism); the feature documentary Tomorrow Today, starring Sir Peter Ustinov, the Dalai Lama, Jane Goodall, Ervin Laszlo, and Arthur C. Clarke, with music by Peter Gabriel; a television series based on David Patchell-Evans’ book Living the Good Life; and the documentary Sea Without Tides (the story of the legendary fishermen of Lake Erie and the mystique of the Lake).
