I am a veteran journalist, accomplished communicator and motivated ghostwriter who is seeking new projects. In the two years since the closing of my last employer, the Rocky Mountain News in Denver, I have completed two books for clients, one of which so impressed the international founder of a prominent movement -- which is featured in the book -- that he agreed to write the introduction. I have been hired to ghostwrite two more books, but on a longterm basis, leaving time for more projects.I have also written my own book, Colorado's Sanctuaries, Retreats and Sacred Places, (Westcliffe Publishers, 2001). I've found I have an affinity for collaborative writing and have forged excellent ties with my clients and deliver strong, powerful copy on deadline and in their "voice." In fact, my long newspaper career as a reporter and columnist (in addition to some years spent in television and as a governor's press secretary) has give me invaluable skills in working quickly, accurately and with great versatility for all kinds of communication needs. I can write with sensitivity and insight -- AND can deliver technical and "workhorse" prose when required. I hope you will consider me for your next project.

I have over 20 years of experience in creative writing and 10 years in academic writing. I am lucky to have been gifted with a writer's "ear", making it easy for me to turn even the most dull essay or project into something that is fun to read. I also have quite a bit of versatility when it comes to writing style. Witty humor and reflection are two of my strongest skills when it comes to creative writing and I most definitely welcome any and all work that willl allow me to put those into play. Currently, I am at work on a children's book and intend to submit it for publishing by the end of the year. Ultimately, I would like to write a suspense thriller, but I'm still working out the plot so that dream is still in the future a bit. If you are interested and would like to see samples of my writing portfolio, please feel free to contact me. If you don't see anything relevant there, I will be more than happy to consult with you to see if I may be able to help you with your project.
