Experience

Summary

In 2002, I wrote professionally for my college newspaper, I mainly wrote the OpEd, but at times covered events. I did not write professionally for eight years, returning in 2010. In that time, I have written more than I ever imagined I could, 100+ books

Portfolio

Real Estate Content developed for Various Clients, mostly in Australia

For a time I landed numerous real estate clients, ranging from agents to brokers. This provides a sampling of some of the work performed for these clients. I am especially proud of the first two-a book/website combo and an extensive educational course to train people new to real estate investing.

Articles and Blogs for Clients Ranging from Food to Sex and Relationships to Video Games

In this portfolio, there are excerpts from a range of content developed for clients since 2011. These show my ability to write a range of material.

Books, eBooks, and more Great Books...Did I mention I write books?

As a book writer, I have been privileged to write a vast assortment of books for both clients and self. The fact is that I love writing books and have developed both short books for email farming and full-length books. I also provide excellent turnaround times when a project is needed quickly.

APA Style Essays and Professional Journal Articles

One style of writing at which I am most proficient is in developing scholarly topics. Well-researched with logical development, these articles lay at the heart of SEO when written correctly. Shhh, that is a little-known secret to getting high-traffic articles: Write like writing for college.

Novels and Short Stories

As a freelance writer, I seldom turn down a juicy project (or one which pays well). From time to time I have clients who have a burning idea for a novel or set of short stories. Although not my preference, if the price is right, I will write.

Side projects

I developed a lenghty real estate study course for an investor in Australia. I have self-published 32 books for myself and friends and ghost-written another 70+ for clients. I have written two screenplays, two volumns of short stories, and too much poetry

Ideal team

I believe that a six to 10 member team offers the best dynamics and results. However, more important than the size of the team, all members have to accept that not all are going to agree at all times. Compromises made, conflict leads to success.
