I believe in excellence. Writing isn't about just putting words on paper, it's about expressing ideas. Like any art, the writer has only been successful if the reader sees what he sees, hears what he hears, and feels what he feels.

I am an experienced writer with 89 books published; in addition to my 500+ page web site and 3 blogs. Let's just say, I've been writing for a while.

If you need "how-to" articles written on the building trades, I can almost do it in my sleep.

I find that very few technical people can write well, and very few writers understand technical issues well. I guess that makes me the oddball. Maybe I'm the oddball you need.

2 - Business - I've written extensively about business, most notably writing a 30 book training course on management for a training organization in Australia. My business background is varied, both as a manager in corporate America and a small business owner. While I don't claim to know every latest trend and buzz word, I do have a solid understanding of...
