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!
