Writing for web and print. Experienced marketing writer, and journalist of technology, science, the arts, energy and the environment, government, and business and finance. Best-selling author.

I was trained as a science journalist, so I am adept at quickly grasping the essence of my subject, and am highly skilled at illuminating whatever component parts comprise it. As a ghost writer and editor, I keep the client's/writer's voice intact. Many clients have told me they had no idea their ideas could be so successfully put into words.
