Service Description

I primarily write about guns, knives, shooting sports and fight sports such as boxing and MMA. I author 5 columns based on those subjects for an online news source and freelance for magazines which cover those topics. I can provide content for the same subjects for magazines, websites, newsletters, blogs, etc. I am available as a technical consultant on the same for screenplays, novels and short stories particularly in the Western, police and military genres or anything involving weaponry throughout history.

My writing can take the form of a highly advanced technical piece down to the informal nature of a blog. I am more than just a fan of those subjects, I have been a part of those industries my entire adult life and bring forth an experience and voice of authority that other writers do not seem to have. If you want credibility in your prose, look no further.
