There are thousands of good writers out there, so why hire me?
I have an extensive background in publishing (both book and magazine) so understand the process from the ground up - what makes something readable, what entices the reader to enter your world and more importantly make a purchase. This combines with a second career in economic development with a focus on supporting the business community, and more specifically helping businesses grow. These two diverse careers dovetail to provide me with an ability to write about almost anything, be it an article on Dungeness crab, or a ten thousand word formal business proposal.
“I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed working with you. You just seem to “get” the relationship thing, and how beneficial loyalty can be to all parties. Also your openness, honesty and transparency virtues serve you well.”
Gerhard Aichelberger (Printsmith Group)
Not many people know it, but I still do quite a lot of corporate writing, so if you need: a winning proposal; a business, or strategic plan; a kick ass sales letter; a white paper; new web copy; or anything else related to business give me a call.
Trouble Getting Started?
I help many authors conceptualize their books. Do you need assistance in coming up with the right approach, or theme, and pulling together a table of contents?

Comment from New York Times bestselling author Robert McCammon for Mike Wicks' book Fire From The Sky: Diary Over Japan
As an avid reader of military history, I found [Mike's book] Fire From The Sky: A Diary Over Japan to be both a treasure-trove of information and a stirring--and often startling--look at the air war over Japan in World War II. What comes across in this book is not only the dedication and heroism of a B-29 bomber crew, but also the harrowing circumstances of life and death in the air. Truly a remarkable book, told by a remarkable Everyman who found himself with a job to do that now, in the light of the passage of time, seems like an incredible and mind-boggling achievement. This book richly deserves its Silver Medal Award.
