I ‘m a ghostwriter, ghostblogger, freelance writer, author and publishing consultant.
I’ve written nine print books, one of which ‘Fire From The Sky – A Diary Over Japan’ won silver medal for best military memoir of 2005, awarded by the Military Writers Society of America. In addition I’ve written several eBooks, training manuals, economic development publications, annual reports, and business white papers. I write copy for just about anything from websites, brochures, and advertisements. I’m also a ghostblogger – you’ve probably read my words but never knew it!
My sales and marketing column appeared in Douglas business magazine for ten years, for which I continue to contribute feature articles. I contribute food and lifestyle articles to YAM (You and Me) magazine, a lifestyle publication for southern Vancouver Island, and my articles on travel have been featured in Salt magazine and Adventures NW. I was also the founder of WestShore magazine.
I have more than 40-year experience in mainstream and custom book publishing, working at many of the great publishing houses including Random House, Michael Joseph, and the Pearson-Longman group. I founded one of the industry’s first special publications divisions, publishing corporate sponsored books and specialist publications. I subsequently became managing director and part-owner of two custom publishing houses.
