Overview

Topics in science, technology and medicine are what I write about the most. In particular I relish making difficult concepts not only understandable but enjoyable for the non-technical reader.

It's hard to beat a good story told with the right words. This is as true for articles as it is books. I've done plenty of both. By the numbers my background includes over 450 published articles in magazines, papers, and journals (mostly technology related), about 300 product reviews (for PC Magazine and many others),11 published books, a columnist...

Service Description

There's a thread running through the services I deliver...

Ghost writing: Book length on technical subjects, or shorter pieces.
Article Writing: Professional, knowledgeable, interesting to read.
Web Content: Concise, SEO savvy.
Blogging: Single posts or the whole enchilada as needed.
Applications and Proposal Writing: Complex pitch? I'll make it clear.
Press Releases: Difficult technical subjects are a specialty.
Product Reviews: For all types of technology.
Creative Writing: Complicated idea? I'll find creative ways to describe it.

...I relish a challenge.

Beyond the obvious technical orientation in my recent work, I also spent 20 years in professional theater - playwright, director, actor, management. The artistic experience brings something extra to my writing.

For the record. Big job or small, it may be cliche but I believe the following are important: Pay close attention to what the client wants. Ask the right questions. Stay in touch. Deliver what is expected. My standing and record at Elance speaks for itself.
