Overview

I'm a trained journalist, with considerable writing and editing experience, including jobs as editor of a weekly newspaper and monthly news magazine. I have a keen interest in travel, sports, global politics, the environment and theatre/cinema. I'm also fanatical about spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. I grew up in the States, but have lived in Ireland for 30 years. In 2004, I wrote and self-published my first novel. Please contact me for any type of writing or editing job, for which you think I may be suitable. I...

Service Description

After graduating with a BA in Communications/Journalism in 1978, I served as editor of a weekly newspaper in northern Minnesota, after which I was head hunted to become editor of a monthly news magazine, published by the Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers. In 1981, I moved to Ireland, and took a number of sales jobs. In 1990, my wife and I started our own office equipment business, and in 2000, we sold that company to a large Dublin concern, called Bryan S. Ryan. I remained on as company director, until 2008, when Bryan S. Ryan merged with yet another company, at which time I became Regional Sales Manager. At this point in time, I'm looking to retire from the "day job," no later than April, 2011. I'd like to keep some kind of income stream coming in, and if I could do that by reverting to what I love best--writing--then it would virtually be a dream come true.
