I am a writer of the creative sorts, bringing bits of my brain to the page. This has included short stories, poetry, screenplays and songs, and opinionated articles. I also love to put people on paper. There is something old fashioned and quaint about a person's face that has been meticulously scratched out with a pencil. Some of my creative writing work can be found at http://dreams-n-things.blogspot.com/.

I am a full-charge, certified bookkeeper, providing virtually painless virtual bookkeeping solutions for small businesses. On-line bookkeeping is a new concept for most people. If you only need a part-time bookkeeper for your business and don’t wish to add this position to your staff, outsourcing this part time need is an excellent alternative. My goal is to remove the hassles you face when dealing with the never-ending flow of bookkeeping details by providing a cost effective alternative to maintaining an in-house bookkeeper. I have a degree in Accounting and Business Management (1997); I also have a Masters in Social Work (2006). I am a Certified Bookkeeper, meaning that I've sat for several exams covering all aspects of bookkeeping - the only thing I don't do is end of the year taxes, but I will work closely with your CPA to make sure that everything you need for your accurate tax returns are in order. I am certified to handle the books of companies with up to 100 employees, though I have worked with companies that have over 100 employees. I am a member in good standing of the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (www.aipb.org); certification is through AIPB. In addition to my licensure and certifications, I am also insured. I have been a certified QuickBooks user (again, more exams) since 1997, updating my expertise with each new edition - I'm currently certified through the 2012 version, and proficient in both the Mac and all PC editions.

Primarily a music/entertainment writer, but also extremely proficient in the area of creative/fiction writing, Ian Rice hails from Long Island, NY and is currently seeking new and exciting methods of getting his work and skills recognized and appreciated. With technology expanding the playing field for the independent artist, Ian feels that adapting to the new marketplace is essential. Rice doesn't choose to write...he has to write. It is in his blood and part of his genetic makeup, or so it would seem. When not making contributions to the nationally-published music magazine Hittin' the Note, Rice spends his time working on his first fiction novel (always under constant revision) and maintaining a blog dedicated to honest and fair reviews of rock and alternative music recordings. Rice also has extensive experience proofreading and editing on documents of both large and small scale. During his time at Stony Brook University, Rice spent a great deal of time assisting fellow students with the grammar and style of their term papers and also worked as Arts & Lifestyle Editor for one of the campus' news publications, The Stony Brook Independent.
