Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the world.
I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, and I have tried my hand at just about everything. I had a checkered primary education but made up for it by writing. The year I was ten, my family lived abroad; instead of going to school, I wrote stories for my brother and sister. What should have been my senior year in high school, I skipped school and spent the year traveling with my family. That year, I wrote a novel, as yet unpublished.
Writing an academic thesis for my university honors degree so inspired me that I very nearly made academics my life. But, I took another path and went into financial services where I stayed for over twenty years in both New York and London. During my New York years, I got a law degree while I was working. I wrote several legal pieces during my tenure as a law student and my writing earned me a spot on the law review.
Although my job was more numbers than letters, I always found a way to write, both professionally and personally. Professionally, I wrote everything from insurance policies to a monthly newsletter for my clients. Personally, I began a blog. Over the next four years, I wrote a total of ninety-five pieces that included my travels, reviews of plays I had seen, parties I went to, even the look of my new passport. A few years ago, I left corporate life and I am now trying to make a career of writing.
In addition to my pieces on this page, I also write for Doux Reviews. I used to post the pieces I write there on this blog as well, but decided that too much of a good thing is, well, too much. Please come over to the site and have a look around. You can find the pieces I have written here. I also wrote a weekly recipe blog for Kitchens by Mike Taylor, a kitchen designer based in the UK one of which was selected as among the best of 2013.
I have ghostwritten a wide variety of articles and blog posts. My work has also been featured in Hopper.
What do I do when I am not writing? I spend far too much time in front of a television or movie screen. I can often be found with a book in my hand. I love to travel, but the budget doesn't extend there these days. Soon! After years of not being all that interested, I am becoming a much better cook than I ever thought I would be.
If you would like to get in touch, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to comment if you like a piece, or even if you don't!
