So you need it yesterday, hm? Good thing we e-collided: you'll get the quick, crisp copy you need . . . whatever your time zone.
And you'll be delighted with the quality, too: I've written ads for Coca-Cola, Apple, and AmEx . . . more than a dozen books . . . articles, TV scripts, webstuff, even those little paper placemats for kids at family restaurants.
Awards? More than 50, including CLIO honors, a Best of Show ADDY, a Best of Show in Direct Marketing, and International Book of the Year from The Sporting News.
Oh, and results? I've written controls that?ve been unbeaten since the last century. Literally.
Whoever the voice (tough salesguy, warm grandmother), whatever the length (brief banners to big bulky books), wherever it'll appear (magazine in Memphis, e-mail in Egypt), you?ll get it . . .
. . . QUICK!

I've been a professional screenwriter with produced credits since before the Bears won a Super Bowl. What makes me a good writer? I'm never bored. Anything can interest me. And I make my interest contagious. Good writing has a solid voice and a point of view. But talent is only the first step. The hard work takes craft, experience, discipline. I demand the best from myself. And I listen to my readers. If it ain't on the page for them, you better sit back down and keep typing, Bud. I write screenplays, mostly. Feature films, TV movies, mini-series; a dozen produced films, over 100 paid script gigs. Fiction: short stories, a novel, copywriting, research. Am I best for your project? Let's talk; we¬?ll figure it out. Unless I feel certain I am right for your assignment, I will pass ¬? why waste anyone's time? But if I tell you I can deliver, nobody will do it better.
