I have two careers. For thirty years I have been a physician practicing medical oncology and pain medicine. The experience in that career led me to adopt an additional one. For twenty years I have been a free-lance writer. I have published a regular newspaper column, numerous op-ed pieces, persuasive essays, humorous articles, book reviews, and poetry. I have published two books as a solo writer, and one as co-author. I am better than faster writers, and faster than better writers. Why should you hire me? Oddly enough, because I don't need the job! I write for the joy of the craft. I would be ashamed to submit a piece that fell short of excellence. ************************************** PUBLICATIONS BY ERIC CHEVLEN NEWSPAPER COLUMN Cancer Answers, appearing semimonthly in the Meadville (PA) Tribune, 2006 – 2007.

Hi there I am a line drawing artist. My style consists of lines thick or thin. I create drawings of a surreal nature. All original with a dark side and sometimes humorous. I also paint portraits in a pop art surreal style seeking to find individual trade marks of the people I paint which allows for their true nature to come thru with what is recognisable as their essence
